Yeah...been there. I once pounded a pet tie-out spike into the backyard. Couldn't figure out why the garage door opener wouldn't work after that. I had managed to find the exact spot that the power line from the house to the garage was buried and very efficiently severed it like the magician sawing a girl in half. Good thing the hammer had a wooden handle.
