    I need to get that lined out before I forget! I'm trying to get a couple of tag-alongs to go with me, they're just trying to get their boards to agree.

    I'm not going on any calls if it's like it is today. We've ran three fire call-outs, including the McDonalds in Monett. I'm frozen stiff.

    I did that the other day after getting woke up at 0400 for a water line break. I probably could have gotten back to sleep if our dispatchers didn't re-tone after 2 minutes of not hearing anything. I guess they don't realize it takes vollies a little bit to get out the door when everything's iced up.

    I saw the McDs fire on the Springfield news earlier...Kinda gives a new meaning to "Flame Broiled" don't it?

    That's really funny locally, as we call Monett "Monexico".

    We are having to push this workshop back until Feb 20th due to scheduling issues on my end.

    I will be contacting the folks that have already signed up tomorrow.

    That being said we still have slots open for the workshop.

    Brian.....Good thing that the workshop was rescheduled as last weekend we had LOTS of snow and ice around the state. Southern Missouri got the worst of it.

    Hopefully you only bring your curse the 20th of this month of more runs for us instead of Kurt's curse he takes around the country of frozen stuff.

    Looking forward to seeing folks here in Eldon.

    Was that the problem? I drove through Southern Missouri over the weekend. Arkansas roadways were a total mess but Missouri wasn't too bad. At least they understand the concept of salting and plowing.

    In AR they like to say "God put it there, God will take it away!"

    Having to reschedule was a problem on my end. The Boss of my real job had me scheduled for a trade show and forgot to tell me about it until I had Brian booked here.

    No, I was placing blame on Kurt for bringing the weather. Or Brian for bringing natural disasters.
