You're getting ready for a cold winter, closing the upper windows in the hog house, repairing a hay loft door that hasn't shut all summer, or working on the roof.
We all know the dangers of slips and falls below you, but what's the one thing you need to watch above you?
Overhead electrical lines. Never touch an overhead power line - with your hands, ladders, or anything -because of the danger of electrocution.
So watch out for overhead power lines this fall as you get ready for winter.
