    Is it those people's house and all their belongings that got lost through the fire? If so ... poor them. Poor-poor them!

    Boy. Those amounts of SNOW! And we here did not get a single flake! Something is wrong weatherwise.

    Your photos are brilliant. Each and everyone shown here is good and just exactly what you mean to show. I can't even name a favourite. Maybe 9. I like your choice of DOF in 9!

    No, it was in a town about 10 miles from me, in a direction I do not usually go. It was way too cold to stick around and wait. :)

    Wow! I feel so sorry for those people! Excellent series!

    I am GUESSING (I don't live anywhere it snows) that they are melting snow to use in that yellow thing. Like I said, just a guess.

    These are usually used in rural fires where there are no fire hydrants. A pumper will have a hose in the tank drawing water into the trucks tank and pumping it out to the fire via hoses. Once a water tank is set up, multiple water trucks will be waiting in line to dump water into the tank. In most cases if there is a rural house or barn fire, there will be 1 full department dispatched, and 3 other departments will be paged for water trucks only. I dont know why they were using this here in the city though. There may have been a shortage of hydrants, or they could have froze. It was very friged that day.
