Holy crap it's wet down here. Damn tropical storm won't make up it's mind!! We got some pretty bad flooding in some areas and a little bit of wind, but the east coast got it worse- like 25" of rain in about 2 days. We did get 14 sweet hrs of OT, though, so I can't complain too much. How's LI?
What's up?? Haven't been on in a while~ We had a pretty good save on a 4000sq. ft. 2-story house the other day. I'm first due on the engine with a rookie volunteer, but the best is that we had JUST finished a rather sixeable dinner at the local diner and were joking about puking in our masks at "the big one". Then the tones dropped =]
I'll put pics up in the next few days. How have you been doing?? Stayin busy?
What's new buckaroo?? Not too much on ths end. Just hot & humid as HELL~ starting our summertime pattern of circa 4p.m. thunderstorms. We can usually set our watches by them!! They bring strong wind and sometimes lightining, and you know what that means =] Oh yeah- the other 2 guys on my shift (we only run 3 FFs & 1 paramedic/shift) decided to become Contract Firefighters in Iraq/Afghanistan. They're shipping out in like a month. For like $95K ($85 tax free) it's not too bad! They get that for base salary PLUS they get a certain amount per call. I might be going back into the Army as a firefighter, too. Still running the numbers.
Hey there Erin~ We had a garage fire yesterday and a couple of MVCs, but other than that, not much!! We went 8 days straight w/o a call last week, so we've been pretty bored. We're in the middle of a really bad drought, but had an unexpected week of drenching rains about 3 weeks ago; the overall water table is still way low, though. Our brush fire season has been surprisingly slow, with a couple in surrounding districts- but the big one hasn't come yet!! How are things up there going?
Not too bad~ had a structure fire mid-DEC and the first 3 shifts this year brought a boat fire & 2 vehicle fires!! Pretty exciting, in all actuality :) One of the guys on my shift had a lil boy day before last shift, too!
You cold up there? We just watched the Pats game & the Packers game is gettin ready to start. Looks cold up there!!!
