|Never seen this before!|
We could not figure out what was at the end of the cable. At first, we thought it was some type of auger that was being used at the gas drills. We got in the car and drove a little closer....
and used the zoom on the camera....
It was a series of 10 disc saw blades about 2 1/2-3 feet in diameter. Now all we had to do was figure out what the saw blades were for. We kept on peering into the sky to see what we could see.
The pilot would dip down beneath the trees. What could he be doing?
|Look at all of those power lines!|
|Lowering the saw blades|
|Getting ready to trim the trees|
|Look closely and you can see the engine that runs the blades|
The precision that the pilot had was amazing. It is surely a dangerous job and can't imagine the steady hand and eagle eye the pilot must have! It was so neat to watch. Dan's Mom said that in the 57 years she has been living on the farm, she has never seen anything like it!
Not much else has been going on..just enjoying our time here as well as the scenery.
|Although low, the Susquehanna is still beautiful|
|The most amazing sunsets!|
Life is good!
