It's Transportation Day today at the school, which means the kids get to ogle some really big toys and learn a little something to boot. I was honored to accompany a class as they made the rounds, which means I got to ogle, too. And learn - I never knew Winston-Salem was the only city in North Carolina with a whole fleet of "boom trucks".
Shown are trucks from Piedmont Disposal and Fritts Towing, two locally owned companies. (The edge of one of the city's boom trucks is visible on the far left.)
