    Earlier in the week the forecast looked fine. Looks like Kurt is dragging the weather to PA with him. Still raining in Alum Bank at 11 pm. Will see what happens!!! The rest of the weekend looks great.

    Snake eyes it was! Got on board at Dulles and five minutes before landing in Johnstown the pilot got antsy with the weather and waived off and we went back to Dulles. Rented a car an drove in anyway.UUUGGGHHH! I hate DC traffic at 4:30PM on Friday!

    Of course, neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow and ice, nor dead of night can keep this appointed instructor from his seminars. I made it here to Alum Bank just now. No excuses locals, if I can make it, you can make it. CYA in the morning!LOL!

    This is a picture from yesterday in Blue Knob. I'm sure the Johnstown crew is seeing the same thing.

    Kurt's presence in Alum Bank has far reaching implications here also.

    Boy what I would give for an old fashioned new england snowstorm or even a blizzard.

    Just getting some power back this evening after the ice storm hit thursday noon. I think we've gotten maybe 3 1/2 hrs sleep since then. Still over half the town without power and more than likely will take until late sunday or monday to get the majority back on. We're now out taking generators around and powering up folks furnaces for a couple hours to keep the pipes from freezing. Latest count was around 200,000 Mainers in the dark and new hampshire and mass with similar situations. Trying to get warming shelters set up for those folks still without power tonight.

    WJ,
    We are going to take care of the snow for Brian in the morning. Even as we speak he is winging his way to Missouri for a seminar tomorrow. The forcast for tonight is for the temp to drop 25-30 degrees in 2 hours with ice and snow overnight.

    Brian may take the snow curse away from Kurt this time

    Only 25-30 degrees? We're looking at 52 degree drop down here with a high of 66 today and a low tonight of 14. Is it to late to turn Brian around?

    I wish it was just the snow they were talking about.
    Local news in NE MO say 1/4-1/2 inch of ice.
    Still be in Jeff in the AM.

    Mike,

    I was going by what I saw last night on the weather.......I just checked the latest weather and they are now saying the high here at the Lake will be 63 and the low tonight of 12. With the history Brian has in MO for increasing runs for my department I guess we better get ready for a bunch of flue fires.

    I figured that's what you did. Just wanted to rib you a bit while I had the chance!

    Hopefully the ice won't be as bad as I'm hearing it might be through the week.

    Well Brian's curse is holding true......He is in the area an hour when I go to have dinner with him and run 4 MVAs in 2 hours on the way home. Of course the 40 degree drop in temp in 1 hour and the thunder sleet/freezing rain might have something to do with it also.

    Mike, I think we are getting ready for what you just got. Its was 59 degrees here at 0700 and they are saying we will be in the 20's this evening with up to 2" of sleet and snow mix. Kurt and Brian are probably getting a nice kick back from all of the snow tire people.

    Smile Alum Bank seminar

    Hi just to let everyone know that Kurt seminar is excellent. This is my second time that I have been to his seminar and have pick-up a little more information this time around. Kurt also kept up his tradition and brought the snowy weather in to the area with him. But we managed to make it though and sunday after class the weather had improved. Also I guess Kurt while in the area tour our fire hall and the WTC cross and the Flight 93 memorial. So look forward to working with Kurt and everyone Else on here and the future and thanks to Kelly for having us and everything they provide was greatly appreciated. So good luck to everyone in your grant writing. Anyone that not sure if it is worth the money you don't know what you are missing to you have went through this seminar. Kurt looking forward to the 2009 AFG grant and working with you in the future

    I will echo that and say that I learned a great deal form Kurt's seminar. Kelly was also a great host. Money well spent and look forward to Kurt's expertise. If there is any doubts, attend and you will not be let down.

    I want to say thank you also for the nice compliments. I am usually in a major panic the days before something like this, and it again was no exception. You all were very easy to please though. I knew there was no sense in me trying to concentrate this time, so why not just be there to help. Sorry I ran off Saturday for the structure fire, but boys must play. You all stay safe out there and good luck.

    OK all you fence sitters, 1st round DJ notices for peer review are being sent out as I write this. No excuses for not getting educated to take advantage of final two years of AFG. I have obtained a new sponsor for the remainder of my 08-09 National Seminar Tour dates which has allowed us to lower tutition fees. How do you spell economic relief? How does $149 per person admission and a $150 grab bag full of 5.11 tactical gear sound? Come and get it!
