Artist's Description

Challenge WINNER!! – Home Town Heros in Just for You Dedications group, 21-Feb-2014

Featured in the Emergency Services Group, 9-Feb-2014

I know that once was the motto of the United States Postal Service, but it is all I could think when I saw this electric utility repair man at work.

taken on Monday, 3-Feb-2014, we saw a snow storm that dumped an additional 9 inches of snow onto what had already fallen last week. In the midst of this, a transformer blew two blocks from my house. We were without electricity for about 3 hours, in the midst of a snowstorm in VERY cold temperatures. Our utility company, PSE&G was out there immediately to fix the problem, and I felt so bad for the technician who was in that cherry picker working in the midst of the wind, snow and cold.

Not only did the transformer blow, but about 2 hours later the wires caught fire and we had another electric outage.

I am thankful to these dedicated and talented workers who come out when we are nestled in our blankets and warm homes to climb poles, launch cherry pickers, put up huddle tents on the poles and work in the most adverse conditions to keep us with the utilities we depend upon. I dedicate this to those people who YES get paid, but still have to endure what many of us never have to to just do their jobs, and provide us with comforts we often take for granted.
