April 18th is National Lineman Appreciation Day! After the last week, with the multiple widespread power outages we have had, with the snow and wind, it's the perfect day, to pause for a moment and give thanks to all the lineman, who leave their own warm homes, and get up, work in the dark, usually in the worst weather, for hours at a time, to restore the power!

When you turn on the light in your office, turn on your coffee maker, watch tv, thank the lineman, because when the bad weather rolls in, they roll out!
