This man is right outside our home. The power went out one afternoon (it goes out almost every day) and here he came, climbing poles as he came down the little road we live on, saying the power would be back on in about 10 minutes. If you look closely at his feet, you can see the metal 'claws' he has on them, that enable him to climb the poles.
Here he is at the top.
And here he is, with his tools, cutting wires and working with them with his bare hands and scaring me to death - I wonder how he keeps from getting electrocuted! The power did come back on in just a few minutes......I wish he would come down our lane every day when the power goes off! This is the only time we have ever seen anyone working on one of the power lines close to where we have lived.
