Yes, we got the photos you e mailed and I saw the ones you posted,
Brrrr, not even for the hot toddy afterwards.
We had a good one a few days ago, fully involved house, out in the country so a large tanker support job as well, and I was in work. Caught the tail end of it though.
Just posted the latest photo's on my page.
A good house fire where we did the tanker support for Brampton and a couple of car wrecks.
Be glad you guys don't have to operate in weather like that. :-)
