    My cuz had a pole break with him this morning taking a 40ft drop in the creek. Said his shoulder is messed up and bleeding out the nose but he's gonna be ok. Ambulance got stuck going to him so they airlifted him to UK.

    Yeah no doubt. The one time he wished he wasn't strapped to the pole I'd imagine.
    I've heard em talk about big chunks coming out when that kick the gaffes in but this one broke off at the ground as they was stretching new line.

    Hopefully his shoulder is not too badly damaged, and they find nothing more. Can imagine what he was thinking during the fall. What do you believe may have caused it to break off at the ground like that, while stretching the line? I know nothing about that, but it seems like there could have been multiple potential reasons for such.


    Lol, I imagine that you do right about now. I still had around a 6x10' area of ice on a small portion of the deck this morning. Just peeked after typing that to notice the thickness of it has decreased and size of all is only slightly smaller. Still had one 4x6' patch of snow within the front yard early morning, as well. Of course, the snow wall remains within most of the ROW,. Highest are only 1' or so, while some of my neighbors have over 3' within there ROWs.

    Lady next door still has a small pond within her front yard near mine. She needs to do only a small grade job around her street lamp post down to the runoff ditch, in order alleviate her problem, while the neighbor upon her other side has a bit more extensive work, in order to resolve his runoff problem. I don't care about his bigger problem, being that he is anti-freedom regarding dogs. He ventured over once long ago about all and has wisely never returned, lol.

    Sun has been out all day here, and the temperature was not too bad after noontime, causing me to have opened one door to the deck. That was a nice change for maybe an hour, before it became a bit chilly, but I'm ready for more snow. Bring it on, the more the merrier! :)

    Back years ago I worked for big electrical company. We were at
    Wild Turkey distillery in Lawerencburg. Our job was to replace poles
    and wiring between the barrel warehouses. I was in a bucket truck up about
    35 feet and cutting the wires off the poles. There was 6 more poles
    on ahead of me. I cut the bottom two and then as I cut the top one all
    hell broke loose. The moment I cut it,it sounded like a 22 rifle going crack
    and took off like a bullet. Those remaining six poles fell one after the other
    like dominoes. They were all rotted at ground level. The only thing holding them
    was the wiring... no one got hurt.
    Hope he is OK,dam that had to be a ride.....
