Mike's birthday this weekend everyone
So wish him a happy birthday
Mike is leaving to spend the weekend with some firefighter friends at a lake that's about three hours driving time from his house (Paso Robles / Lake Naciemento). This should be a good chance for him to decompress, deal with turning 55 and spend time with good friends.
He will talk to you all next week. His post should become interesting considering he's back on the floor! Engine 18, here he comes!
We're going to put California on high alert. We're working on the IAP now; I foresee numerous task forces (with tenders!) and some wildland strike teams being called in for stand-by, while they light the candles on your cake.
