We had a bit of a storm awhile back and it broke an old home made lectric pole supplying Juice to the lower barn. Snapped it right off and left the lectric wires a laying in the field.
I ain't supposed to Climb, but I know someone who can climb. Maybe I need to buy a ladder for her or maybe a pair of shoes.....
And Larry D. Scott, I am buying her a bucket of Luminum Paint for that old barn roof.





As it turned out....The JUICE was OFF. I Thought it was, but I wasn't sure till the cutters bit the wire.

That is an accident waiting to happen.
I can't believe you let her climb up there on that sort of setup without at least using a ladder for a starter and THEN not pulling fuses at the switchboard/meter board 1st.:eek:

That is 1 way to get somebody killed especially on a setup like that. If she got belted and electricity doesn't let go when it belts you if she survives the hit the fall from the top of the ladder to the ground has a lot of serious consequences.

Sorry for the rant but I work in the electricity industry here in Australia and that would get somebody fined at the least if it were seen by the authorities here.
Like a gun you treat any power line as alive till proven otherwise even low voltage electricity(240V in Australia) can kill you if it grabs you.

That is really testing Darwin's Theory of Evolution....... sorry mate but that is just suicidal under the guise of helping out and at the worst she can end up with a pine overcoat just because she's doing a good deed.

We're not on this Earth for a long time but bugger me there's no need to try and shorten that time up especially with somebody you hold near and dear.

Someone was bound to say it. I just hope someone was listening.

Guys, neither JR or Miss Judy are dummies. Bet that everything was checked out beforehand.
Now for the climbing? She has legendary abilities. Would I be on the top step? Probably not even two steps down after this little side trip down broken hip lane. Too many consequences awaiteth that are very, very time consuming, not to mention the comfort factor being zeroed out.

Tom is right

They are neither one dummies. If you notice the pictures the wire that she is cutting is a bare wire that she is holding on to before the cut. They knew very well that all was well. Except the precarious bit of climbing on the stool on the cab of the tractor. Like Tom said she is well known for her climbing skills. I am pretty sure she knew exactly what she was doing.
