Default old man winter giving up

Up on one of our mountain sites this week, first time this winter. Finally enough snow gone to land. Panels not putting out much until ice melts, we had a mild winter so not much ice damage.

Going to work in helicopters and snowmobiles.....there's probably only a few electricians that can say they've done that!

Looks cold, it's supposed to be 80 here next week.

Snowmobiles and boats, no helicopters.

Loose about 3db with ice covering. Got out of there before the ice started coming off the tower. You don't want to be around when chucks of ice fall 120' feet, smashes anything it hits.
