I did and even made it through my hand surgery and now its starting to look more like spring, no snow in the yard but its still a little cool as old man winter is still trying to stay here. I have been doing some more reading on-line and in different mags about driving to and from the fire scene and to police calls, roll overs and etc. We are are not getting better as per the books.
