I caught three bucket trucks heading down south on I-55 (perhaps to the Mississippi coast, perhaps to NO) yesterday. Right after Gustav, I saw caravans of them almost every morning. I guess with the damage from Ike, they're back in force.
The man in the first truck waved at me as we passed. I think he liked being photographed - or he thought I was a weirdo!
Thanks go out to all the bucket truck operators who spend time away from friends and family to get the electric lines back up and running.
