Bucket truck

Work has begun on cleaning, repairing and painting the East End bridge here at Huntington. I saw it from this angle this morning as I was making a dropoff in Huntington's Guyandotte neighborhood.

It's hard to tell, but I think there are two guys in the bucket under the roadway. I wonder what it's like to be in one of those things as you step in and then are lifted over the river and then under the bridge. It must be pretty cool, kind of like being able to climb to the top of the bridge, as I was allowed to do about 16 years ago.
