Helicopters help out....

The other day as I was headed home from town,
I came upon this helicopter hovering in the air.
We have these big power lines because we
live next to McNary Dam
that we get our power from there.
Of course NOT!
We get our power from Bonneville Dam.

To the left you can see a man on the top line,
and if you get your magnifying glass out you can
see one below him in orange.

 The helicopter was moving the item on the line
from the left to the right.
 It was a pretty slick operation.
 In the 30+ years we have lived here,
I have never seen anything like this being done.

 The photo above reminds me of: AIRWOLF!
Remember that show?


I thought this would be interesting to share,
and wouldn't you know.....
as I was creating this blog,
and lost it all!
I had to redo it!
So I best be saving and posting before the battery backup at
my server goes dry!
