Maintenance on an electricity pole

by cjj on April 20, 2011

As we worked outside today, all these vehicles kept arriving on the property.
Just a few days ago there was a helicopter inspection of all the power lines in the area. Obviously they found something that needed fixing near here. I didn’t notice it before I looked at my photo tonight, but it shows an obvious problem. There is a dangly bit at the top of the pole.
This team of people worked until after dark fixing the pole. This meant that we were without electricity for a few hours. It was good that before they cut off the power one of them stopped by to tell us what they were doing. I was able to fill a thermos with hot water for tea. It only meant that we worked outside until they finished. I’ve mowed lawn in the dark before.
