Firetruck fun


We were off on some errand when we came upon the firetruck - all over town they have been flushing out the hydrants (why? anyone know fireman stuff?). My son thought it quite thrilling to catch some spray. Wonder what the birds thought of the sideways rainstorm?

Hi Susan,

My volunteer firefighter husband says the hydrants get flushed periodically to remove sediment that builds up in the lines. He then went on to tell me way more info than necessary! :)

Good to know, Alison!
