How often do we think about the electrical lines running from pole to pole across the street? Or the fact that there are no visible electrical lines near our homes?
What about when the power goes out? When this happens, the blinking lights of our plug-in alarm clocks are a reminder of larger powers at play.
Our reliance on electrical power is rarely realized until we are without it. In large part, our electricity is made possible thanks to the line workers who work ceaselessly to ensure that our lights can turn on, our alarm clocks don’t fail and our groceries don’t spoil.
