There's a lot of wisdom in that statement. I was a tramp lineman for 3 painful years before I got married. During major storm repair work, you did some crap that you'd never in a million years do if you had a little time to do it right. We even used native trees that were nearby as push guys to prop up a pole that was leaning badly just to get power restored. Some of the piss-poorest work is done during storm damage restoration.Teetorbilt said:.... trying to cobble the grid back together again.
