No one can bitch about the weather until you've climbed up 3 power poles today in this wind.

It's a bitch that sometimes this feels safer than flying a bucket. I have been up in some weather that almost blew my truck over. Then it is time to strap on the hooks and double strap it.
I guess this comes from learning to climb at Sheppard in the winter. Ice on the pole, snow in the air, and windy as all get out.

I was over at my boss's place after work doing some more on the Jeep, and a big ass branch came down on the roof of the shop. We had the doors open, shooting some primer, and WHAP!!! I said "Oh shit", and my boss was like "huh?".......he thought I'd made the loud thump, until I showed him the branch hanging off the roof

Well, it looks like I'm not going to work today. I have a few trees down across the road to the east of my house(with a few about to fall), and 2 feet+ of water over the road to the west of my place. We only have the one road. :-(

I figure if God doesn't want me to go to work, who am I to argue? ;-)
