The evils of Dominion Virginia Power

This may sound like the ranting of a nut, but listen to my story and then decide... I came home last week to find a pile of branches in the back corner of my yard. I intuited that the power company must have cut back my neighbor's tree to keep the branches from bringing down the wires. Maybe they'll be back tomorrow to pick up the debris, I thought hopefully.

Well, of course not. Not only were the branches still there the next day, but I discovered they had also dropped a branch from my neighbor's holly tree in the other corner smack on top of my (admittedly untidy and ill-maintained) back cutting garden. That day I got a letter explaining how Dominion would be in my neighborhood trimming trees (whoops - already happened), but not a word about how Asplundh, the nice tree company, would also pick up the mess they left behind. So I called the man who wrote the letter and left a message, but no reply. I'll try again next week.

Of course the power company has to clear the lines, but this is astonishing! The company they hired cuts down my neighbor's trees and walks away, leaving the debris in my yard? This can't be right! Their arrogance takes your breath away - doesn't it??

To be continued...
