    We've had one run to be RIT for a neighboring town...released in a few minutes. We just got back from a accident we never found. You know, the kind people call in while they are driving by the scene. Very sloooooow.

    Sounds like snow sucks...I can only relate with massive water. We've had three straight days of rain with too many MVAs to count including a level 3 MCI involving a tour bus, and a sinking house boat requiring water rescue of 300 lb man in a wheel chair. Welcome to Sunny Florida!

    1 Car vs. (Stationary) Mobile Home (approx 100 yards off the road) PRIOR to the first of the snowfall. HEAVY suspicion of ETOH. Other than that it was pretty quiet on weather related stuff.

    Oh and wodden backboards make great sleds ;e
