What's the right word to describe men who come out in the dark of night, the coldest, stormiest, worst of days, to fix power outages. These are the hardiest of men. When it's 8 degrees and half your block is without power you notice these guys and are in awe at their being able to withstand the cold until the job is done, often hours on end.
Unfortunately for them and the neighbors across the street, yesterday's transformer and under ground cable was fixed, but another transformer blew at five this morning causing another underground cable to be knocked out. So they're back working.
Thankful for people like the power guys who can work through what has to be painful conditions.
