Hardcore

.

The guys at Kotzebue Electric Association are hardcore. 11am on a holiday, half dark, 60mph winds in a blizzard with near zero visibility and they are up in the bucket truck fixing the electric wires.

Wow...they don't do that here...of course we usually have lightening rather than freezing cold and I guess they don't want to be lightening rods.

Good thing that they have bucket trucks, they are all amazing, they don't mind the climate..
