South Dakota 2005 ice storm

Snow and ice storms can bring havoc to transmission lines. Western’s crews are always ready to repair the system quickly and restore power to local communities. After an icy storm in early December 2005, Western crews went out to get conductor wire and fiber optics restored between Granite Falls, Minnesota, and Watertown, South Dakota. In some places the ice on the lines was more than 8 inches! (Photos by Randy Medicine Bear)
