I love trucks

This morning I decided that if I took a camera to town with me, to run errands, something would appear before me worth taking a picture of, and that I'd post a blog of whatever it turned out to be. I kid you not! Within a few minutes into the journey lo and behold there it was.

Monday's fierce winter storm knocked out the local electric transformer, and today a new one arrived at the Quichapa substation. The pictured crane truck, that will first pick up the destroyed transformer and then lift into place its replacement, totally blocked both lanes of Hwy. 56, taking its own sweet time backing in. A gigantic metal dinosaur controlled by a human brain. Way cool.

Just like a kid I still love trucks!

Ain't humans cool for building and maintaining such things as crane trucks and transformers?

Nope. I thought you saved that maneuver to woo the womenfolk.
