Its winter.....in case the temps in the teens, ice and snow had already told you....and now for the second time in almost two weeks the weather forecasters are predicting the storm of the century here in the wonderful midwest. With ice falling now...and over a foot of snow with 40mph winds to follow I look out the window from the day room.....see the ever depressing sight of my fellow citzens driving as if it were summer. I know I had better get a nap in....as the next 36 hours are likely to bring just as many calls.....be safe...and remember...everybody MUST go home...

we're getting some of that today too. the wind has picked up and its blowing sand from the beach all over the bay floors and on our cars in the parking lot. a group of girls that use our outdoor shower behind the firehouse have to consantly adjust for the shifting wind and sand so they're using our patio because it has a wall deflecting the wind

sorry i just had to do it. i was a NY FF for a bunch of years before goin south. Please be safe up there i remember what winter ops were like

The weather folks say its going to get a lot worse in the next few hours.....I am trying to figure out how much worse it could get.....

Only 1 accident so far......the winds are near 35mph with snow falling....waiting on 10 inches of snow. I feel for our brothers dealing with the ice and snow.....
