Before I filled in the hole that used to be on the right side of the meter, we straightened the conduit running up into the base of the meter. Several wheelbarrows of dirt later, the hole was filled near to the level of the surrounding dirt. The pile of dirt above grade came out of the ditch I dug today for the conduit that runs out to the barn. My buddy Bud (is that redundant?) pulled the wires from the disconnect pictured here to the panel in the garage a few weeks ago so I could have temporary power out there. Now that the ditch is dug, we can finish running the conduit and call the outdoor wiring complete.
Here's a little wider shot that shows the old disconnect on the pole along with a nice roll of used wire hanging above it. It won't be long and all the dirt will be back underground where it belongs.
