This is a picture of the land behind Yuma Fire Station #1 about two weeks after the groundbreaking ceremony. Huge tractors and earth moving machines ate away tons of dirt, while big water trucks sprinkled continuously across their work to keep dust down to a minimum. My dutiful husband climbs up on the fire station’s roof twice a week or so to take pictures of the progress, not only for posterity, but to keep me happy. I’m afraid of heights. I climbed up on that roof just once—and that was more than enough for me, thank you very much!
As you can see in this last picture, there are pillars being built. They have something to do with the building's footings. I saw the rendering a couple of weeks ago when I went to my husband's office at city hall. It will be a very pretty building--when it's done. I believe it's on schedule.
