It's That Time Again

It's that time of year when the weather starts to get really interesting again. I always say if the weather isn't trying to kill you, then it's just another ho-hum day.

Around these parts, the weather could get convicted for felonious assault with intent to kill.

This evening a pretty thick fog rolled in. Visibility dropped to under 100 yards. So we went into a code 17. That's when we put out an extra p-car and divide the zones into three parts. And instead of just answering alarms like we usually do, you check all of your zones and report in every fifteen minutes.

Kind of a pain in the buh-tocks, but it was something different for a change. And driving around in that fog was making me a little paranoid. If I was an inmate intent on escape, that's the kind of thing I would have been waiting for.

Luckily it only lasted a couple of hours before it lifted and blew away.

Of course now there's severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings just south of here and possibly heading this way.

Ayup! Theah's a stahm comin' Mahtha! I can just hear it now.....

Well, for those of you who are going to be out and about with family tomorrow, have a happy Thanksgiving. And for those of you (like me) who are going to be at work, you try and have a happy one too, the best you can. Also, besides being Thanksgiving, tomorrow is also National Parfait Day.

If I could just remember what the snap a parfait was, I'd be fine.

Well, whatever it is, have a happy one! And let's be careful out there....


  1. has anyone ever escaped from your prison?

  2. Anon- There have been a couple of escapes, but none since I've been here. Not that I'm taking any credit for that, mind you.

  3. You're not the only one stuck working on turkey day. I had Wednesday off and that's when we had family over. Sandra came in with me tonight, but I think she doesn't quite have the stamina to stay up all night.

  4. Haven't you ever had a fruit and yogurt PARFAIT from McDs? :)

  5. Joe- Now that it's just me and the wife at home again I don't mind so much. I get better comp time for working holidays.

    Misty- Never seen one. Are they any good?
