Our neighbors put up many 10-12 foot metal poles, we think to create a vertical garden. While I think it's awesome, there was a storm that occurred a few nights ago, and I happened to be up when a bolt of lightening hit one of the poles! It ended up knocking out our cable and internet. It was SCARY! The energy it through was severe. We have had to shell out money for a new router and had the cable company come out. They had to re-wire everything. Is there anything you can do? If you are facing the front of their house, the poles are on the right hand side. I don't think our neighbors really thought about them being struck by lightening.
