Hurray for the Firefighters!

Today's uploads are a bit slow in coming, but this is not surprising.  More importantly, they include a few shots courtesy of the Bristol, Tennessee Fire Department. See the Bristol link on the left.

The men and women at the BTFD are the best.  They bent over backwards to let me in two stations to shoot, and they are extremely proud of their new Quint engine.  Most of the shots you see are of this magnificent machine.  A special thanks to Bunny at the Central station for making this happen.

Also in this upload are a few shots from a recent snow.  I had great expectations for snow on early spring blooms, but the images, putting it mildly, sucked.  THIS is why I am an amateur.  At least I can still afford to eat.
