For the first time since we’ve moved here, Ferndale’s Tractor Parade was a dry event. After last night’s rain and wind it didn’t look hopeful, but the rain stopped earlier in the day, and it only drizzled for a few minutes during the parade. It was nice to be able to take pictures of the parade without having raindrops spotting the lens. As usual, the star of the show was the Leonardi’s tractor, which was the one that was featured on the magazine cover. Even better, we didn’t have a major fire after this year’s parade, so after looking at the pictures I went home and went to bed.
