A brief prime time outage

The net connection here was down for a short while earlier this evening. It seems that some small animal chewed through the wire from the telephone junction box outside and the point where it entered the wall of the house.

The wire had been chewed once before, and the electrical tape had been applied after that happened. As you can see, there was another try at it. I don't know what kind of animal would do that. We have rabbits and squirrels in the neighborhood, and either could have.

We replaced the wire, and this time, there's a piece of steel flexible conduit over it between the box and the house. I doubt it'll be a problem again.
