Sorry I haven't been around for awhile. Been busy with school and had a family reunion, etc and haven't had much time to do anything lately. Now, things are slowing down and my kids are getting excited for school to start on the 26th! I don't know who is more excited, me or them! Anyways how are you and everyone else doing? Not much here going on. I got pictures to send, but I have to find my cable for my phone first. Fire deadon up here has been extremely slow! It's been so wet that we haven't gotten anything. However, BLM says we are going to get it yet. I still say also that we will have a fire yet. It's just a late start. They are calling for our fire season to go all the way into December this year. If anyone is still hiring, let me know and how to get ahold of them and I will apply! But I got toget going, and get my homework done. This is my finals week the end of the 9 week for these two classes then, I start two more on the 31st. Thank God it is almost over. Anyways, you take care and stay safe and tell everyone hello for me.
Take Care and Stay Safe!
That's alot of people! WOW! I thought we were packed this year. We had a lot of people here but not that many. Our storms weren't to bad, mostly just heavy rain and alot of lightning and wind. In Billings lastnight, I just heard on the news, when the storm went thru, lightning hit a man and his sister and two kids. He died at the scene, but everyone else is okay. Poor people, my heart goes out to them.
On a much happier note, our 3rd and 4th was awesome. No major accidents, or anything. The night of the 3rd the Skylighters put on a spectacular firework show!! The firework show started at 10:30p.m. and lasted for an hour. It was really cool. Tonight we have another show at the end of Main Street, I can't wait.
Anyways, I think everything else is going good. Weather has been cooperating somewhat and no major headaches to worry about yet. (Knock on wood!) Anyways, I better get off of here and get dinner going so you have a great evening, and I will talk to you soon.
Take Care and Stay Safe!
p.s. Keep me updated on the dispatch jobs please thank you
Just give me the holler and I will find a way down! Seriously!!!! Anyways glad to hear you got your truck. We get ours from DNRC on Monday morning. Mark is going to meet us at the fire hall and he's taking the old one back with him to Billings.
Tonight we have severe thunderstorms across the whole area. Have them coming in again tomorrow afternoon and night. Hopefully it will spare us tomorrow night for awhile so we can do the 100th birthday for Roundup with the fireworks and all.
I will take pictures from my phone and send them to you on Monday. If I don't talk to you again before, you all have a great 3rd and 4th of July. Hopefully, you all will be safe!
Take Care and Be Safe!!! Happy 4th of July!!!!
Your Friend Always,
Hey back to you! We are going to be celebrating our 100th year on the 3rd and 4th of July this year! i can't wait. It's gonna be a hell of a party. Hopefully we can enjoy it in peace this year without any fire calls. I am keeping my fingers crossed. They are gonna have a heck of a firework show on the 3rd this year!
Well, we are supposed to get up to 95 today and we have a red flag warning. We are supposed to get some strong to severe storms tonight. Hopefully nothing real violent. Anyways, it is great to hear from you! Say hello to everyone for me. We should have out new Type 6 Attack Truck up and going anyday. It can roll if we need it. We are waiting for our lightbar, siren, and the radio. But, if we have to, Jim has a red light that we can use in it and we have our portable radios if we need them. We are also getting a new DNRC truck this weekend. I think it is another brush truck, that is also certified as a structure truck, but don't quote me on that. I don't remember.
anyways, I had better get going, I have two assignments due today so I better get busy. I want to get them done before the nasty weather hits.
So, I will talk to you later. Keep cool
Been along time since I have talked to you. So, how are you and the rest of the gang doing? Everything going pretty good here. Staying nice and busy. We have finally warmed up and had some pretty good thunder and lightning storms Saturday and Sunday night. Nothing real hecktic though. Scared the crap out of my daughter though. We are supposed to get hit pretty hard Thursday night. Can't wait. Well, everything is good here and still going strong with my online college courses! Keeps me pretty busy going to school full time. Sorry, I haven't been on here lately. just been really busy. Hop to hear from you soon.
Well, the weather is finally getting warmer and warmer!!! It's realy nice. Unfortunately, I am stuck inside for a little bit so I can get my final paper done for school. Almost done, maybe another couple hours. Then I can go out and enjoy the sunshine and the warmth. Anyways, you have a great week and I will talk to you soon. Take Care and BE SAFE!!
Hey, it would be really cool for all of you to come up and help! To bad you are so far away! It's supposed to be up in the 70's by Monday. The guys are taking the state lands truck out and the tender on Tuesday and Wednesday. Blm and us are going to finish the blackline, then after that they will set the whole inside on fire. Jim said they are bringing up a helicopter. I don't remember what he called it yesterday, maybe a helitorch? Anyways, I told the BLM guys once you land, I want to see inside. I've never been up close to one before, and this would be a perfect chance. They said no problem!!! I can't wait. I will put pictures on the site once I get them. Anyways, gotta get going. Talk to you soon!
Take Care and BE SAFE!!!
Happy Easter! Glad to hear everyone made it thru okay!! Mother Nature sure can be wild huh? We had alot of sky lightning lastnight, and a few rain drops but that's about it. Nothing real exciting, except to watch the lightning. It's supposed to be real nice today and up in the 70's tomorrow with some thunderstorms but nothing real bad as of yet. Then we have a slight cool down on Tuesday thru Thursday with rain. Wish this weather would make up it's mind on what it wants to do. Anyways, glad to hear everyone is alright and have a great Easter!
Stay safe and I will talk to you later in the week!!
