|9/15/23 Seattle City Light workers, Maple Leaf neighborhood|
While all the natural gas action was happening on the street, another kind of work was being done way up high – by Seattle City Light. Just around the corner from our house, two trucks with cranes held baskets of workers who took most of a day installing new cross beams on existing poles. Thankfully, we experienced no disruption of electrical service.
When I sketch trees, it’s an opportunity to feel gratitude toward them for the services they provide. In the same way, sketching utility workers is an opportunity to thank them for services that I take for granted most of the time.
