Seismic Bracing

The seismic bracing for the bookcases is completed, thanks to volunteers Martin Peterson, Stan Zalatel, Mac McMillin, Jim Friestad, and Art Sylvester.  We'll paint the exposed nuts and L-brackets, then we'll hope for an earthquake to see if the system works!

Martin attaches one of the braces to the wall.

Stan and Martin attach a brace to the top of one of the bookcases with Jim Friestad inspecting their previous work.

A wind storm stripped all these fronds from one or out tall palm trees, saving us, therefore a tree-trimming expenditure.
