Button and the Helicopter
We had some excitement the other day. Apparently Southside Electric, our local power company, is trimming the trees near the power lines using some equipment we've never witnessed before, neither have the yaks. At first we didn't know what was going on, other than we could see this helicopter hovering near our house with something hanging from it. We realized it was flying slowly above where the power lines are and dragging a cable. We later saw what appeared to be circular blades at the end of the cable. It was quite fascinating and noisy. This was all happening close to the yak field. The only yak that showed any interested was Button. She generally seems to be pretty observant. Here's a little video of her reaction to the helicopter.
