Imagine being out in the freezing rain while everyone else is inside. Imagine it’s dark all around you. Now imagine you’re 150 feet in the air with an uninsulated wire in your hands, working to bring power back to a community. Or splicing hair-thin fiber-optic cables together to restore broadband Internet service. Being a lineman is one of the toughest, most taxing jobs in the country and one we absolutely can’t live without. So, this April 18th, we celebrate Linemen Appreciation Day. If you’re warm inside, lights on, music playing, appliances whirring…you have a lineman to thank!
