Ok DU'ers, just an FYI

At least in my town the radio is already going nuts (fire dept). I have no reason to doubt this is the way it is almost every where. You plan to drive tonight, be careful out there.

It is no joke.

One fire, and three accidents just at the moment, plus medical calls.

(I got it on as part of the job)

1. Tell the truth, Nadin.

You got it on because you're an adrenaline junkie.

2. Actually I got it on since the folks we rely on

Are off! It's a service that monitors them so I don't have to.

I hope all I do is...listen to it and we don't have something major.

Oh and will let the big boys cover the first murder/baby of the year.

Firing their equalizers off at midnight, I figure....

7. That is one reason I dread

The scanner and the service.

This county has had five mass shootings already.

Trust me, they do not fear my 30-70 mm lens.

8. Same here

We have had another dusting of snow, but more snow blowing over the roads.
It's been pretty active with slide offs and cars in ditches.

Hope people slow down--no need to rush.

9. We always listen to the scanner tonight for entertainment...

around here, we, more often than not, will know whoever the unfortunate persons might be who are being named for whatever infraction or disaster that has befallen them. It's a pretty sad way to get our news.

Happy New Year to you, Nadin!

Have a good entertaining night.

10. NYE drinking starts at breakfast in this town

This is the one day of the year I don't go anywhere unless there's a medical emergency.

By noon, most people are weaving all over the road in my part of town.

Tomorrow will be wonderful. They'll all be home flaked out in front of their TV sets with raging hangovers.

12. Yup

We go out if we have a major story that absolutely needs covering, that is not above 3000 feet. I ain't driving on icy roads.

13. Stay safe everyone. We either go to friends and stay the night or stay home

with friends. Or just stay home and enjoy a quiet evening.
