So you think your job is......

difficult, stressful, hard, boring, unfullfilling, or any of the other thousand things that people say about their jobs. Take a look at the view that was outside my office this morning!!

Look at this CRAZY way to work!!!!

OK well this might just look like any old helicoptor to you but take a CLOSER look at that white spec directly below him.

YUP it's a MAN hanging on that line. There were two guys working on the power lines and the helicoptor kept picking them up and dropping them off one at a time. They would be picked up and moved to another section of the power lines or be moved to where the helicoptor was landing. I knew that they were working on the power line this week but to actually be able to see them pick a man up and then have him hook on to the power lines while the helicoptor would hover above and then just leave him there was amazing. I think this would be a pretty cool thing to say that you do for a living but man I couldn't imagine actually doing this. When the helicoptor picked them up and took them back to the landing area, it was CRAZY to see this guy just swoooshing around like he was riding a swing at a carnival. But don't think for a minute that the guy in the helicoptor flew slow. He was flying just as fast as all the tour helicoptors that fly by, except he was so much closer to the ground.

So there you have another reason to love or hate the job you have. It was really cool to watch them, while I was firmly on the ground. :)

Hope you all had a wonderful St. Patricks Day!!!
