Power line clearing

After two morning online classes, I went out for a short walk with Scully around midday. We passed a work crew still clearing off the tree branch that had fallen onto the power lines during the high winds yesterday.

The wind was very strong again today. Checking the weather records, it was even stronger than yesterday. It was absolutely miserable being outside on the short excursions that I took to give Scully some outdoor time, and I rushed home and indoors again as fast as possible. Fortunately the forecast is for milder conditions tomorrow.

This afternoon I worked on assembling some Irregular Webcomic! strips from the photos I took last week. And did two more online classes. I have four now on Mondays, so it’s pretty busy. I finished up the topic on Generalisation, which I think turned out to be a pretty good one.

One thought on “Power line clearing”

  1. It’s interesting how that work, done pretty close to the opposite side of the world, is nearly the same as how my own company would clear a branch. The only really obvious difference is the type of traffic barrier used. It appears that they de-energized the line first, which we would probably try to avoid doing–you can usually remove a branch with a hotstick-mounted tool of some sort. (He isn’t wearing insulating gloves, for one thing.) Maybe there was other damage and they had to de-energize in any case to repair that.
