The world is full of surprises. Just the other day I was using our little blue portable monitor on a heavily involved job. We hated to, but had to move to a defensive exterior operation. Just plain got run out of there with heavy fire in the basement extending all the way into the second floor upon arrival. Well, it seems while working with the little gun, hell I bet we were doing every bit of 450gpm, I tried to work into the overhead of second floor. I had to lift the front end up off the ground to get the stream where I wanted it.
Well, that isn’t right. Seems like they need to fix that. OK, fast forward about two weeks, and one of the other guys that was working with me on the fire hands me this email blast about a new model that allows the stream to go nearly straight up, without having to lift the monitor off the ground. Damn, I’m good. I just think about ideas and the manufacturers just respond without even talking to me about it. I watched a little video they had on their web site, and sure enough, it does just what I think it should. No more lifting the front end up to hit the ceiling. Now, the next problem, I need to convince our penny pinching board that we need to get another one. I am just guessing, but I bet the 6 hours at the fire in the cold will end up being a lot easier that trying to get this funded. In any case, the world is full of surprises…if you just ask me, I will give you all sorts of solutions to problems that no one even knows about.
