Light at the end of the tunnel, ride to the county, moving in, and stuff...

Well it has been several days since our last post, and a lot has happened.  So, let's catch up on things.
 Thursday of last week was a day of installing windows on the far side, yeah I know I promised pictures, it helps when you don't misplace the sd card for the camera.

   Friday, the Brothers on A Shift fixed the vinyl siding, ran duct work and wrapped up some interior repairs. A lot of work done while still running taking care of the public.  The light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter.

Saturday was the return of B Shift, and we were tasked with getting the floors clean.  Kenny Hurt was detailed to the East Side, and worked with Joey Avila getting the floors squared away.

While the floor ops were going on, the Lt was prepping dinner to go in the smoker.  The menu for the evening included cornish game hens, baby back ribs with a Texas style rub, homemade cole slaw, and baked beans.

The table was set for dinner, everybody sat down, grace was said, and it was time to dig in. 
Oh yeah!  Smokey, meaty goodness.  right at the time everybody was getting ready to dig into the ribs, alert tones for the Rescue Engine.  Assist Roanoke County on a structure fire, by the sound of the radio traffic, we knew that we were going to be out for a bit.  The first arriving crews had their hands full with a house that was well off when they got there, and embers from the fire blowing through the neighborhood igniting spot fires.  Those guys put in some work doing exposure control and containing spot fires, a tip of the hat to them all.
After returning to the East Side, you would not believe how good reheated ribs can be.  Damn good!
A few more runs through out the night and a single vehicle MVC (motor vehicle crash) that look out a light pole, and sent one to the hospital.

Sunday, Lt Coe's crew moved into the new rooms, and put the TV room back in order, while they crew from Station 3, went on a regional Haz Mat call with the Brothers from Roanoke City.

We started with this.

 We finished with this.


 Well, that's the past several days in a nutshell.  
Time now for rack ops.  - Big Mike
