I had work today, went in and did absolutely nothing... most of the guys left around 3pm, I snuck out at 4pm...

What a royal waste of time, the phone didn't ring once and all I did was set up for work on Monday.

Then again I work with a bunch of douche-nozzles who like to email each other all weekend about work...

I had to stand 4 hours of watch this morning, but then I was done. I hate it when people talk shop during time off, unless you have a real cool job to talk about. Is firefighting not as cool as it sounds.

Working now but it's been slow, as expected. Save this floating holiday for another day.

Firefighting is 90% boredom & 10% terror. And goes rapidly between the 2.


...........but I'm a wildland guy, what do I know!?

I worked yesterday and today and I've gotten lucky enough to land on the shift that will get the pleasure of working Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day as well. Firefighting is a great job but sometimes your shift just gets screwed. Was that whineeee enough for you guys? We made a great spread here at the station anyway and were going to make prime rib for Christmas. Its not all bad. Good to see you Zac, how was fire season? Cheers!

Surf, It was great. We pretty much got it handed to us for a few weeks, then the weather took a turn & we got almost a foot of snow over a few days. I actually spent Thanksgiving with the family as opposed to on some [email protected] fire-line. Speaking of holidays, there hasn't been a holiday that I've been home every year for. Name all 13 or how ever many of them, I've been working at least once for all of them. We truly have a 12 month fire season. 6inches of snow this past monday & I heard some traffic from a district west of us today that had a fire going already. We're already back into it.
