Electrical mishaps

Well, yesterday, I was working on installing TV and Ethernet jacks at Bret's place. I had planned to do 5-6, but... well, let's just say that didn't happen. I cut the first hole in the wall, dropped my 3ft drill bit down the hole, and it went a lot further down than I expected. Went to investigate, and I managed to be in the cold air return. No biggy really. Annoying, but not really a problem. Anyway, instead of pulling the plenum off, we decided to drill through the joist in order to fish the wire up, and what did we hit? Well, Travis hit it. A power line. 120V of pure goodness. My 1/2" drill bit didn't make it though. So, we ran new electrical to the line that was cut, and that outlet box had plaster in it (seriously, wth). And finally got that all squared away, and did box 2, without a hitch. Box 3, well, we're still working on that. Getting holes to line up isn't so easy....
