I thought these painters were pretty crazy to begin with... this photo of this guy was taken on a day of 40 mph winds...

Your comment reminds me of a very good song.. lol

I guess they all get used to working at those high places. It is a nice photograph for sky watch.

Anita said...

Thanks!

My dad used to do this kind of painting years ago... he told me stories about how they'd be painting a grain elevator, 120 ft. high, and drop a rope over the side, put on gloves and jump off, grabbing the rope before the got to the bottom... lol

Lori said...

Wow...that is scary! I wouldn't go up there either, and especially not on one of our windier than windy Kansas days!

Thanks, Tom!
I'm getting ready to go deliver newspapers, and later this morning (between 10 am and noon our time) I'm being interviewed on CNN!
Our town's tornado anniversary is this Sunday, and the media has been camping out here all week!
My other blog, Prairie Dreams has lots of details, and videos if you're interested!

It's a hard job, but someone has to do it!

Anita said...

You're right...
That water tower would be an eyesore if they didn't have someone who would go up and paint it! :)
