I LOVE Fall!! I love everything about it, except for the allergies, of course - but even they're tolerable with the incredible beauty of a Great Lakes Autumn!!
However, seeing multi-colored leaves carpeting the ground also brings to mind the ever increasing mounds of paperwork and documentation that accompany our jobs as firefighters - whether career or volunteer. This commentary came to me while out on a country run. I saw a couple raking their leaves and they were literally up to their waist in fallen foliage. It was comical - and made for a great metaphor (always looking for a great metaphor) about the ever-present pile of paper that weighs down the firehouse desks - especially chief, inspection, and training officers.
Enjoy Fall, everyone - it goes by too quickly!!
