Unlike previous years, everything went pretty smoothly for the lighting of the Ferndale Christmas Tree today. The weather predictions were all doom and gloom, but the day started out with temps much nicer than they had been. We even had a nice sunrise as we were putting the lights up. You can see the installation photos on the Ferndale Volunteer Fire Department site. I spent the afternoon putting our own lights up, which are still in progress because I kept blowing fuses. I need more extension cords. The rain stopped for the actual lighting ceremony and fortunately, we didn’t receive any fire calls right before the ceremony like last year. So I was finally able to get a good photo of the ceremony, and it is now available as a Christmas card in our shop.
