Think Local First: Riders on a Storm
Michael Olson joins a PG&E Troubleman Ralph Storment for a journey into the heavy rain to document the battle to keep the energy flowing.
PG&E Troubleman Ralph Storment prepares to ascend into the trees in the forests above Boulder Creek.
Storment untangles the twisted wires that blew the fuses and cut the power.
Storment backs up a narrow, muddy trail to access the transformer and blown fuses.
Storment uses "hot stick" to change blown fuses atop the power pole.
PG&E Troubleman Ralph Storment may get home by tomorrow morning, if the storm abates!
