High Wire Act

Gotta love those guys that work on these lines! While in a motel in Texas we watched the Super Bowl with a group of very young hearty men from all over the states who had just spent a year laying 200+ miles of power lines and equipment in Texas (someplace close to a spectacular Canyon they said). Great guys; they were grilling outside the motel and having a great time, insisting that we share their food and "beverages." When I declined, they offered wine, too. DH said that he was sure they cleaned up their language because of my lone female presence. Gotta love those guys!!

Not a job I'd be good at! I feel dizzy looking at that ladder. ;)

Sharon said...

I'm sure glad that's not my job.

In the world of technology we live in, I ask this.
Why, why, why do we still see wires in the sky?

I am glad it is their job and not mine. haha

The pic is very old wind blown snow on Mt. baker.

Now that scares the heck out of me. Electricity and heights, two of my most scary things.

That crane looks like a very large extension ladder!

Bibi said...

Not a job I'd want....too high and too dangerous, but am thankful for those guys who do this work.

Symmetry on Monday and high wires today. A fine variety...but it is those beautiful clouds and sky that really catches my eye today. They are beautiful :).

What a sky!

I'm scared of electricity.

That's not an easy job and I really respect the people who do line repairs. :)

Beautiful and well composed photograph, but I'm also glad that's not my job...

I guess it's better than strapping on a big belt and shimmying up the pole. I guess. Can't say either looks like an easy job.
