One more day of shadowing to go.  We watched some nasty storms swirl around us yesterday; however, the heavy stuff stayed north and east of us.  Denver International Airport was hit with a tornado during the afternoon.  



We've met some very interesting and experienced people out here both wildland firefighters and incident management folks.  Each of them has a unique story and many have been very willing to share their insights with us as we try to feverishly take notes so we can bring their experiences back home with us to apply for our departments and team.  Even though we're not members of Harvey's team that is managing the incident we're still active in day to day activities and constantly interact with its team members.  

Some of our guys out here got some much needed experience in sections that we don't always use (i.e. MEDL).  Any experience is good experience but this is excellent experience and we all will certainly come back with a new wealth of knowledge and a wealth of new contacts.
