Twas the shift before Christmas and all through the East Side, only the 802 crew went out for a couple EMS rides.
The gear hung, and the Rescue Engine sat there, So the Lt. went to prepare some culinary fare.
Croissant's, with eggs, cheese and bacon of swine. Oh yeah! You know that breakfast was on time.
French toast, with syrup completed the meal. At no local restaurant could you get this kind of deal...
Ok, that's enough of that.
So the day was pretty much a slow day for B Shift. 802 crew went to assist Engine 1 and M801 on a MVC, then an EMS run later on in the afternoon, and that was it for the day. There were cookies, crock pot meatballs, and brownies brought in. Stories being told around the kitchen table over coffee.
Dinner was a beef roast with au jus, steamed veggies with a creamy basil sauce, yorkshire puddings, and for dessert a homemade mocha/chocolate cheesecake (Thanks Deb). More stories were told and everybody finally turned in for the night.
I looked out the window and what did I see... It was snowing!! Snowing on Christmas morning adds a nice touch to a quiet (silent night).
This is a hard time to be away from family, please keep our military personnel that are deployed away from their families in your thoughts and prayers this Holiday season, say a little word for all those in public safety working today and tonight, and for the families of all the Brothers in Chicago.
Merry Christmas everybody.
