Ah, spring. Snow is nice, cold is okay, but it sure is nice when it's gone in May.

Reminds me of fighting a grass fire at -17F in Montana.  Oh, the fights to enter or get near a burning structure to get heat!  Nothing like being a frozen FF popsicle when its -20 or colder.  We've frozen up a truck or two over my career.

Great art work Paul! Gotta say I felt similar two nights ago when my engine co. was first due to an attic fire. The outside temp at the time was -51 degrees F. We did our job and made a stop on the fire, saved the house and freezes our butts off at the same time! I wouldn't have it any other way, I love having bragging rights to these extremes! Gotta say, Florida does sound nice though!

Stay safe brothers! See some of you in July!
