Most people wish for a white Christmas, but linemen and other utility workers hope that the white Christmas is one without power outages and other work that must be done in the cold and during the holidays. However, in many cases, they are out trying to restore power or repair other utilities damaged by Mother Nature. These jobs are dangerous in good weather, and more so in inclement weather.
It’s that time of year again. If you haven’t done it already, get your trucks and plows ready for that first snow. For new plow owners, always be sure that the moldboard is lowered and is sitting on the ground when you are working on the plow. And, don’t forget, the truck needs preseason maintenance, too, especially if it’s a truck that you use only during the snow season.
