Just another day at a barn fire

Four hours at a barn fire. Well, four fires, really: The original barn, a hay barn downwind, a shed downwind, and a field across the road (and downwind). I put out a little fire on the corner of the shed's roof by literally pulling the burning roofing materials off and throwing it to the ground. This is why our gloves are so expensive.

That 2 1/2 inch diameter hose is way heavier than it was ten years ago. Yep. Anyway, five fire departments represented, zero injuries, six hours of sleep, and now three days of sore muscles. Just another day at the office.
