The United States Postal Service (USPS) has an unofficial motto that could also well be used to describe the life of an electric utility lineman: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” If you substitute “linemen” for “couriers,” and maybe throw in the words “nor ice, nor tornadoes,” you have a vivid description of what power line workers face every day to serve their communities.
