The kids today say “facts.” But I’m using the phrase “no diggity” along with 
@southerncogas & @virginianaturalgas to remind you to call 📲811 BEFORE you

So, write it down - #CallBeforeYouDig.
Tape the number to your refrigerator.
Or listen to the remix of ‘No Diggity’ about safe digging… and play it so loud that 
the message is ingrained in your brain!  🧠
You could even get a tattoo & tag @chaunceyblack_of_blackstreet (who’s also an 
honorary VA Beach native!) if you think that’ll help you not forget…🤔🤷🏾‍♀️
Or you could simply save 811 to your phone. 
But I think you get it – For the safety of your family, call 811 before you start any 
digging projects to prevent property line damage.
Oh… and head to my Stories to catch that remix I mentioned and relive allll that 
‘90s R&B!
Call 🤙🏾 before you diggity. No doubt! (Play on playette 😉)
