I saw this at the local market – on the stairs leading to the main entrance, outside, and yes – it had started to rain.  I’m not an extension-cord expert but this left me Wordless.

    One would assume if it got wet enough it would pop a GFI or the breaker and nothing would happen. On the other hand I have been to Mexico a bunch and don’t recall seeing many GFI’s or breakers…. at that point don’t know what would actually happen.

      We have no GFIs in our house, but we do have circuit breakers! This photo was taken at a large assembly space.

        You should really install GFIs as soon as possible. A circuit breaker will stop a short from burning your house down, but it won’t stop you (or your kids) from getting electrocuted!

    Option 2, install a Rubber Duct Cord Cover

    Well, at least they shrink-wrapped the connections…

    It’s probably powering the refrigerators. What, You’ve never heard of an emergency disconnect?
