The ice is built up from previous storms and snow melt (freeze/thaw cycles). I get a lot of use out of microspikes here.
I was watching the maps, looked like a crush, sent 6 crews out to you to stop our kadi time, I know to little to late, big bosses want there bonus though, gotta do what you gotta do.With the wind and the way the weather has been I have been busy at work. Some storms swept through Monday morning and I worked a few days of 16's putting power back on. Then we had 50 on Thursday, now we are getting snow and some cold temps for a few days before it warms back up into the 50's with more rain. It has been one odd winter so far.
No we had a quite new years for once, December was crazy busy, 2 weeks of 16's in the beginning of the month due to a heavy wet snow that took out 40k of people, then a small ice storm in the southern part of our northern zone was another week of 16's, it was nice to be quiet for once, I honestly hope this year is a quiet year, would like to have a semi normal life, but if the last 8 years has taught me anything, I think I'll be seeing more of the dash board on my work truck them my personal vehicle.
Yea I have the same sentiments, 2 weeks ago we had a showery Sunday evening, nothing going on at the house, I was just starting a big dinner and the neighbors were going to come over and eat, well the 115kv bus tie went at the sub up the road from me, wiped out all lights in my town and two others, I got a taste of what its like being on the receiving end of an outage, the next 6 hrs sucked, it was humbling so I get why our work is so important.Every year it seems like they want you there more and more for any little wind blow.
