Ahhhh, a Friday at last!

I'm celebrating because today I heard that I finally have the permit required to cross a highway in Nevada with my replacement power line. Why it took 3-1/2 months to get one silly permit is beyond my comprehension. At first, they demanded payment for encumbering their right of way. I pointed out to them that our line was there when they last worked on the road, and it wasn't a problem then. The they wanted to charge a fee because we were replacing the existing line with a slightly bigger conductor - that's when I threw a fit and started doing research. It turns out that our right-of-way was granted years before theirs, and by all rights, I should be charging the state for building a highway under my transmission line! Big Grin | :-D

Suddenly all talk of fees ceased, and after delivering drawings last week of our planned route ( unchanged since 1948 ) the permit was granted today, and will be available for pickup in the Las Vegas office on Tuesday. I plan to be there early, and my contractor is ready to make the crossing as soon as we have the permit in hand. Despite 35 mph winds today, they used a helicopter to pick up and place the last of the poles required this morning, and will return with the copter to pick up the old poles tomorrow for proper disposal. I'm amazed at the skill of the 'copter driver, being able to pick up and drop into a hole a 3000 lb wood pole in high winds. I watched him do this 30 times this morning, in wind that was difficult to stand up in. Wow! OMG | :OMG:

I know that I've set a goal to learn everything there is to know before I die, but this is one skill I may have to forego; there just isn't enough time left to me...
Will Rogers never met me.
