News Filter: We Need Another Fire Hydrant, Again

  • For the second time since we moved into this house, someone collided with the fire hydrant outside the neighbor's house in a solo accident. Both times in the middle of the night. Last time, the guy was killed. This time the driver was able to continue about three or four houses down the road and seems to be okay.

  • In both cases the vehicle had to cross from the opposite side of the street to collide with the hydrant. What is it about that hydrant that people just have to take a crack at it ever so often?

  • The twenty foot geyser outside is kind of cool, though. The sounds reminds me of our vacation to Niagara Falls.


  1. Wow! That must have been something to see. Glad you are okay.

  2. I'm kind of glad the hydrant and phone poles are there. If not for them, those cars might have ended up in our front room. And that's where my wife and I keep our computers. I can't bear to think about it.
