Electrifying ...

What an exciting day, did you feel it, too? This morning Central Hudson showed up again, and connected our new service (six guys in total, one guy working, five guys looking on, but who am I to judge).

Mike (our electrician) was here as well and ready to move some of our existing wiring from the old service panel to the new one, and connect the new wiring. We also disconnected a lot of old wiring, some of which must have been from the great depression era, but definitely not long after that (there is a good reason, why we are getting the whole house rewired).

Pictures say more than a 1000 words, so here you have a picture (now go write 1000 words on what you see). To the right is our old service panel, in the center the main 3-phase panel, and on the left is the sub-panel for the first floor (do you see all the wires going there, amazing).

Mike will be back tomorrow to fire up some outlets, and lights, and a few other things.
