Watch Out for the Leaning Telephone Pole!!!

I sighted something interesting the other day in a neighborhood in Rancho Cordova (next door to my house). There was a telephone pole leaning toward a single story house within fall distance. The photo almost looks “photoshopped”, but it’s not. Even if you failed geometry, it’s quite obvious that this pole is not at 90 degrees. 

If I was appraising this property, this would be something I would need to mention as a potential safety hazard, don’t you think? After all, most people think a “Flat Teresa” is not a great idea in real life. Lenders would want to know about something like this too (and they always ask about high power tension lines).
