I came out of the house Wednesday morning to go to the pharmacy. I was a prisoner on my own property. The street was blocked 50 feet to the north of my driveway and it was blocked 50 yards to the south! With all sorts of equipment in the intersection to the south it was clear that my only hope was to run the barricade to the north an use the alternate bridge a quarter-mile to the north. Removing a couple of traffic cones gave me a pathway wide enough for the car and there we go!
The top picture shows a crane lifting a pole into a vertical position. The second shot shows a lineman working at the top of a seated pole. The pulleys that carry the lines are yay big around, quite impressive. The crews have seated about ten of these and I've no idea how many yet to go.
Snapshots taken from street in front of house. The project was interrupted about ten days while the crews were in Florida assisting in the restoration of power following Irma's devastation.
