I did not enjoy working with concrete, which is so very final and unforgiving. With great excitement, I watched the straw arrive in a large truck, called a Bale Squeeze. As with a dump truck, the entire truck-bed stands up on end and releases a huge tower of straw. This saguaro was later struck by lightning. It was taller than the house, so acted as a lightning rod. Its skeleton stood for several years, then blew over in a storm in May 2006.
