WATCH: Powerful video shows day in the life of a lineman

PINE BELT (WDAM) - Being a lineman is not an easy job, and Southern Pine Electric recently showed just how taxing the position can be in a new mini-documentary.

The clip begins with an early morning wake-up call. A lineman sleepily walks out of bed and answers the call.

He laces up his boots, kisses his wife goodbye, and begins his day.

The narrator talks about how times have changed, but the dedication to the job and land hasn't. He explains how lineman give up time with their family for dangerous jobs, but it is a job they love -- and it is worth it.

Watch the entire clip, and don't forget to thank a lineman!
