My job is so cool

By September 18, 2006March 22nd, 2017No Comments

Driving and walking around in the mountains, enjoying views of lakes and aspens changing color in the fall… this would be part of my job description today. I had to go check out some stuff in the high country today and it was phenomenal. I felt really lucky to have the job I do. I still work for the same company- Xcel Energy…but I went from commuting back and forth to Denver for a grand total of 2.5 hours of commuting per DAY, and sitting in a cubicle all day, every day, entering numbers into a spreadsheet…. to now! I do lots of patrolling, work in boulder(my work is a 15 min bike ride away on the boulder creek path) am hardly in my office, and go around checking out transformers and power lines. Gotta keep that stuff kosher. I get to start some solar power work now too. We are going to be installing an 8 MegaWatt solar system in southern CO. I took some photos today while I was WORKING. 🙂

Barker Res in Nederland. That’s where all the good mountain biking is too! We did a killer ride there yesterday.

Yep, there are power lines in the back country that need some action.

How’s your as-pen?

A couple weekend photos….

At Nick the Welshman and Diana’s. I really like this photo of Brian.

JP(of james frames) and Julie at Hungry Toad in N Boulder. We had these 20 oz beers that were a mix of Guinness and Newcastle Brown. Soooo gooooood.
