These power company workers had been on the job night and day for three days when I took this shot Sunday morning. Poles snapped and wires went down over a wide area. These exhausted men got power back to this neighborhood near midnight on Saturday, then installed new poles and ran new cables. Many Seattle neighborhoods and other communities are still without power since Thursday night's windstorm that damaged homes and took lives. Hats off to those working so hard to restore and repair the damaged system.
