This evening we hosted the Splinter Group, which is the Ferndale/Eureka old house group. We had them over at the shop to show them the restoration that we did, and Greg gave them a talk about old pictures. During the meeting the fire alarm went off for a truck fire up on the Wildcat. Since Company 1 doesn’t roll for out of town incidents, I grabbed my turnouts off of our truck and jumped on with Engine 3. I was changing into my turnouts on the way to the scene and felt something lumpy in my right boot. Pulling it out, I thought at first it was a big clump of lavender or something like that, but on closer inspection I noticed that there were four little legs belonging to a mouse with a severe case of rigor mortis. These dead mice seem to be turning up everywhere lately. Didn’t get a picture of it, so here’s yet another shot from my motorcycle ride, this time looking out towards the west.
