Frosty Fire.




This assignment was the coldest I have been this winter, it was crazy to watch the water turn to ice here. Luckily, I was not alone, Hollyn was there with me and we froze together. At one point the spray from a fire hose whipped right at us and sprinkled our faces with icy water. I kept my toes propped on my car heater for a good 20 minutes before they gained feeling back. Oh the joys of dedicated journalism!

I agree. That was one of the coldest assignments of the year for me. I almost slipped and fell into the water with my brand new HD camera. Eric from FOX 17.

I remember a body was found in a cemetery (how ironic I know) but it was way up in the mountains. Driving up an icy mountain in the dead of the morning totally sucked. I know what you mean.
