Anyone have any knowledge on Florida agencies? Specifically in the Patrick AFB area such as Osceola.

It's not bad as long as they can't really walk, starts going south when they can walk and talk, and really goes down hill when they're teens and know everything.

And then it’ll get rough a little longer, as you’re dealing with brokers, agents, loan occifers, escrow etc. But it’s totally worth it.

Luckily where I'm moving to my relator is a family friend so that alleviates a lot of the headache.

Gotta love getting a call saying the house is flooding... from the drains. Plumber (hopefully) inbound. Once main drain is unclogged, will have some cleaning to do. Yippee.

Update: $150 later and we’ve got a now very clear main drain line. Hopefully it’ll stay that way!

Well at least if they're gonna wake us up for some BS at midnight, we got to break out the irons and saws and cut our way into the wherehouse...

(It was a little commercial kitchen and some water line was left on overnight, it overflowed, and had water pouring out of the building... well it still had the old businesses name on the outside "Fuel Traders Inc" and said water smelled of soured poi and was murky from the residue it picked up, so security seeing/smelling this on the outside called up, and we ended up needing to break in to shut off the flow of water... and confirm it was actually water and not really a fuel and a Hazmat situation lol)

They grow so fast! My kiddo is almost two and it feels like a blink of an eye from when he was born.

One of those nights, late alarm means we didnt get to bed until midnight, they bop us for an alarm at 3am, but realize it's in a neighboring district, try to go back to sleep only to be bopped out again an hour later at 4am to relocate to another station because of a brush fire... only to get assigned to said brush fire ourselves while still enroute... stayed on the fire line until 9:30 when we were relieved by the oncoming shift (shift change is normally 800). 1045 by the time we're back at station, cleaned up, ready to drive home, but luckily the Capt put us in till 1100... and did I mention all this was an overtime shift?

The fire is actually a fairly big one (for us anyway, we dont get those monsters CalFire has to deal with). Normally a brush fire is a single engine (or engine and tanker) response, sometimes a second company called in to assist... we were like the 6th engine dispatched, out of at least 9 on scene when we cleared, plus both department helicopters providing water drops (and an additional Quint assigned to support that) plus all 5 water tankers we have, the Ops Chief ended up coming out. Some 50 personnel, which is 20% of our on duty personnel were assigned to this 4am fire... Oh yeah, the Federal Fire Dept sent like 3 of their own engines and 3 tankers and some brush trucks out (the fire was encroaching one of the military bases)

So yeah, very def glad to be home, and just in zombie mode lol

My last veg fire was in December. Relatively small one, only like half an acre. Day 1/6 (3 days OT) would be on daylight savings. I know it's technically not an hour earlier, but I'm still saying I woke up at 3:45 instead of 4:45.
