Any of y'all catch " Beyond Tough " this week on TLC?

Pretty cool clip of transmission linesmen doing their "hot" thing. Some clips of us regular Joes getting some sparks too...

That's Beyond Tough, Baby!

(After seeing the clips of arc-flashes, my step-son asked me "Is that what you do, Dad?" my answer: I try not to do that... and the look of horror on my wife's face was priceless! I love my job {sometimes}!)

Saw that episode a couple of weeks ago. Very cool! I have a couple of friends that are utility lineman. They are defiantly a bread of there own.
