Curious Moe was inspecting the fallen tree early Saturday morning.
Late Saturday evening, the four wheel drive truck was brought on the hill.
At one time we had up to six NES (Nashville Electric Service) on the hill.
The gentleman in the bucket was one brave soul and finally they changed the angle of the truck so it would not raise up off the front wheels. This truck and another truck got stuck and a wrecker service had to be called to get this one unstuck.
He had to haul up a chain saw and cut off the damage to the top of the pole nearest the house. We were lucky they did not have to replace the pole.
A new transformer was put in place and the man in the bucket was amazing to watch work. I would run in out of the house to take photos because it was in the forties and damp and really windy. Burr.
The third pole up the hill was also damaged at the top. The cross members were removed and replaced with new updated gadgets. I know they have a proper name but this kitty does not attempt to pretend to know what it is called.
The above photo was taken without zooming in so you can see the actual distance. You cannot see the first and second poles as they are out of sight down the hill. These men had already put in a long day restoring power to many folks and we were only two houses so we felt fortunate that they arrived late Saturday. When you have been without power, these gentlemen are who you wish to see coming up your driveway. We should all give thanks to those who work long hours and in the worst weather . It was near mid-night when the last truck left the hill.
The kitty justice is not to take our modern day convenience nor the guys who do the work outside for granted. Playing little house on the prairie is not a novelty.
