    Default Lotsa things....

    This post probably ought to be scattered amoungst several threads, but I've got Chirstmas decorating to do, and I'm too lazy to spread it around....
    hence:

    Item the 1st: Jenn was on vacation? I hadn't noticed....

    Item the 2nd: I hope everybody's Thanksgiving was super. Jack, sounds like you guys had a great time!

    Item the third: As far as your equipment deployment goes, I would take two things into consideration. Make that three, to wit: (a) Where is your greatest concentration of fire hazard/load? (b) Where is your best water supply? (c) Where are your best drafting sites? Remember, you don't want your low-volume pumps at water sources. I hate to say it, but sometimes you're beter off sending a low-volume, high tank capacity engine first, then following up with the higher-volume pumps at the water sources (trustees hate to see those new rigs in the back row though, don't they?) Keep in mind also, that centrifugical pumps take advantage of incoming pressure and volume. So if you are using 3" hose on your 2-1/2" discharges, it is possible to turn your 750 pumpers into 1000's or even 1250's if the input and output is there. Just some more food for thought. No matter what you do, they'll be an expert from 50 miles away that will tell you there was a better way....

    Lastly, has anybody heard anything about Seneca FD burning down their station? I just heard from the proprietor of the local Hardware Hank that they lost everything, and the public works garage enxt door also burned down. He has a tendancy to get things wrong, so I am now on the hunt. If I find something out, I'll start a new thread.

    That is all.

    It's snowing down here too. KEEP IT UP NORTH WHERE IT BELONGS. I HATE SNOW!!
    But snow is second only to shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Guess where I'm going this afternoon? Just cause my wife has a day off she thinks I need to take the afternoon and go to WalMart. But then her dad is taking us to Ryan's to eat so that might be worth it. Oh my gosh, stuffed 2 days in a row.

    Please give Gary G. a big sloppy kiss for me tonight. He thinks I hate him; I dunno why.

    Hey brotha. Who is this?
    I gave a Gary a big kiss for ya!!! LOL
