Brutal is the word that comes to mind to describe this winter. Negative temperatures and wind chills, snow, wind, rain, thunder and lightning and now floods. Let’s just all wish really, really hard for warm Spring breezes and maybe that’ll come true.
Something that has come true: my son-in-law, Scott German, got his wish granted this past week. He has been cleared by the doctors to go back to firefighting — something he takes very seriously and is very dedicated to. He has also been working, putting in five eight-hour days (as a foreman, no less!) and in two to three weeks, that will go to seven 10-hour days. He is so proud to be productive again. What a recovery he has made.
