On Monday, I sent pictures of the fallen cable on the ground, with one end still hanging from a Verizon box on my house and the other end hanging from the utility pole, to Verizon Twitter support. I got transferred to Verizon Live Chat, where support insisted that they'd actually removed the cable. After some back and forth, there was no further response from Live Chat support and the session timed out. So we're back to square one. Whatever. I'll deal with the fallen cable myself, either by chopping it up myself or propping it up on a tree branch. I was simply letting Verizon know, in case they wanted to help with the problem, but they don't seem interested.
My parents are staying at my place for a while, so on Sunday, I took them geocaching in northeast Baltimore, Towson, and Garrison. We went to a lot of cache sites, including some parks, a cemetery, some urban mall and shopping areas, and a historic octagonal bathhouse. They helped a lot at finding some of those urban cache hides, especially those difficult cache hides where multiple people looking from different angles can really cut down the search time. However, I got most of the caches where one had to hike out a bit farther from parking on my own, since they are still recovering from that long and terrible plane ride.
