Power to the people!



These pictures are quite dark as the repairs to the power lines up to Quatse Lake were in poor light.
I have a new respect for the fellows who keep the electricity working. These fellows were out at first light in the snow. Also keep in mind that the fellow in the bucket with the chainsaw has no place to run or hide if things get out of hand... Long and short of it is that within an hour or so the trees were cut off the line. Two poles were straightned up, wires were tied back to insulators and power was restored. Then off they went to the fix another problem area next town over.

  1. I don't know why but I like these shots. The little bit of darkness adds to the "cold" look.

    I don't think I would like their job. I work with electricity around the house but it still scares the crap out of me. I can't imagine working around that much voltage with nowhere to go!
