outside lamp post electric line
doing some digging the electric cord got pulled, but not out, from the outside lamp post. The ground electric cord is still attached to something inside the lamp post however there is not power at the wire on top of the lamp post. I believe the ground electric cord is connected to something inside, at the base, of the lamp post. Would it be ok to cut the wire at the base and attach a new wire that would bypass the internal connection and reach to the top of the post so the lamp could be connected at the top of the lamp post???? Thank you for your time and help. It's much appreciated.
