Steaming It Up
There wasn't a sunrise to be seen yesterday morning due to the heavy smoke from the devastating fire to the east of us in Lake County. Please hold them in your prayers as so many people have lost their homes in this fire. Willits was a buzz of activity yesterday. They had Airport Day at the Willits Airport and Howard Hospital had an open house with tours of the brand new hospital. Wow, is it fabulous! What an incredible facility. Last but not least Roots of Motive Power had its big fall steam up. They had stationary steam engines, steam donkeys,a steam shovel and a steam crane as well rides on the steam locomotive and train. The Roots volunteers were on hand demonstrating the equipment and explaining how things worked.What an incredible collection of train and logging equipment.
