Happenings outside my window

The other day a tree trimmer guy showed up with a big truck and cherry picker.

While he was working the lifter gizmo broke.

It was a busted hydraulic line to his controls. He was stranded in his bucket.

It must suck to be stuck in a bucket.

Ladder rescue.

From the ground the guy managed to get the bucket lowered and drive away.

Next day he was back trimming the trees, only this time he had to climb them.

(For the record the tree guys were very safe and competent, those power lines are much farther away than they appear. The whole thing was just an unfortunate malfunction.)

you have way too much time on your hands...
