Default ANNOYING electirc cable issue!

Hi all. Just posted in Intros so if you want a full list of our projects, it's there.

In 2005 we had a panel and new wiring/conduit installed. It was kind of a nightmare. The electric utility had to come disconnect and when they did, they noticed the electric cable from the road transformer to the house was sagging. They tightened it up, which raised the road-to-house connection, but MAN! It HUMS like a HUGE guitar string! In our entirely wooden home it vibrates and roars. Imagine someone putting a jitterbug on your bedroom floor and turning it on, that's how bad the vibration is in our bedroom (the connection is right outside out BD wall)

Anyone else had this issue? How do we fix it?

Yep anything past the weatherhead at the top of the mast is the power company's property, and they must fix it.
