Question

Metal cover with T in front yard


Some of my neighbors have a metal cover, roughly 4 inch square with a big "T" on it. I was wondering what kind of line this is. Natural gas maybe?

In NYC, they have shutoffs either on the sidewalk or the grass apron next to the sidewalk. The box is about 4x4 and has a little,"G" on it.
Tripower, you would ask your neighbors if they have gas. Or you could call the gas company and ask them if that is theirs. It might be quicker then an internet question.

Maybe that's the new Terrorist tracking system?

That's good one

It sounds like a modern America urban neighborhood where neighbors don't talk to neighbors.
