This morning, before the sun even rose, the Ferndale Fire Department was busy hanging lights on our town Christmas Tree. Two climbers made there way to a permanent platform 130 feet up, and then using ropes and pulleys, the strands of lights are pulled up to the top of the tree. The rain let up most of the time, and in fact for a few minutes it looked like we might get a real nice day. But then the clouds came back in and it started raining once again. Hopefully it won’t rain during the concert and tree lighting ceremony tonight. If it isn’t pouring tonight, I’ll have pictures of that tomorrow.
