Video: High voltage repair man

Nod to the newly-discovered “Best of YouTube” video Podcast for this post.

I added the subscription right before I went on vacation and have, for the most part, been pleased with what I have found. Some days are better than others, like the day I got a download of the video below showing a high-tension electric wire repair man do his job, with a voice-over of the man explaining what he is doing. I found it really interesting.

I wonder if we have people around here who do that job? I imagine we do. Or maybe there a few regional people who are trained (and willing) and do this over a multi-state area?
