So the DirecTV installer came today bright and early (we were first on the list). Out in the very cold, he looked around the house, looked over to the sky. He saw trees...very large trees. Not that they are in our yard, but they are blocking our view of the sky.
He did not have the 60 foot ladder...so, we'll be getting rescheduled here, to make sure we get someone with a 60 foot ladder, so it can go on top of the roof, since that'll give the best route towards the satellite. Our neighbors have it there too...though across the street they're able to put it much lower.
Oh well...I guess Mediacom will be here a bit longer.
