This gives new meaning to the lyrics of the old Glen Campbell song "Wichita Lineman". Along Interstate 94 in West Central Minnesota, new power poles are being installed. This is how they are stringing the wires. How would you like to be the guy sitting on the helicopter skid doing that job? Not me!
They have signs posted as you enter the work zone that helicopters may be active in the area. On this particular day, I happened to have lucked out and saw one in action. I so wanted to pull over and take a picture but you can see the state patrol car in the photo below with his lights flashing to try and keep drivers aware and moving on (at least that is my theory). No rubbernecking allowed!
