Terrorist Rodent Shuts Down Police Station

Got a call this morning on the way to work saying that the police department was offline. All phones, all net access dead. So Dad and I went exploring.

Shine the laser from the PD, get a measurement of 7 miles to the broken fiber. Move to the ISP’s office, get a measurement of 415 feet to the break. Realize that it is right outside. Go to the nearest telephone pole, pry the U-guard open and see the laser shining through the midst of a squirrel’s nest.

Took us all day to splice the partially eaten fibers.
