Great reminder from Grumps at The Happy Circumstance

December 13th, 2007

Take A Minute. Take A Walk.

Go ahead. Put on your boots and take a quick walk to the other side of the street. Turn back to look at your house.

See the fond memories wafting up from its roof? Feel the warmth of all you’ve done there, viagra canada order all you’ve saved there, cialis generic all you’ve shared there?

Now remember that it would take a fire fewer than ten minutes to take it all away and that a fire can double in size every minute. That means that in the five minutes it might take your local VFD to dig out the hydrant the fire will have grown by 32 times the size it might have been if you’d taken the time to help a neighbor do the job now.

For yourself and for your community…dig out the hydrants now.

Also, the neighborhood dogs will be extremely grateful.

    Interesting. But the truth is that I don’t take much notice of where the hydrants are on my street when they’re visible, and now that Shorewood Village plows have been through, wherever the hydrants are, they’re under at least five feet of snow.

    Shouldn’t there be flags or something on the hydrants to make them visible in such situations?

    Maybe you should light the curb on fire to melt away the snow.
