Grass Valley Fire Department firefighter Chris Armstrong drops an egg from the fire department ladder truck Tuesday afternoon at Mount St. Mary’s school in Grass Valley. Dozens of students packed the eggs in biodegradable padding, and six of the school’s “eggsperts” were able to protect their fragile payloads from cracking.
