TEMPTING FATE

Yeah, we're probably tempting fate to put away

the snow shovels

and the ice chaser (chemicals to melt ice on steps and sidewalks).
Although it IS the middle of April and the temperature is hitting no-jacket warm.

Just in case we forget what happens around here in January we can just look at the fire hydrants.

They all look like they are ready to go fishing.  The poles help out when...
...this happens, and...

...this happens. 
There needs to be a way for the firemen to find that little red guy under the mountain of snow.

Is it still snowing there? Snow is suppose to come flying in again on Friday and Saturday for us.

Wow. Imagine needing ice chasers! Haha - I like the fire hydrant flagpole thingies. They remind me a little of a new thing that has started here, people who walk their dogs on a beach nearby are now planting green flags where their dog has made a poo, and then they pay a company to clean up after them. So the company can easily find the dog poo. Really, it is true!

I thought those were blind person sticks- I was astonished to realize that fire hydrants are blind! Who knew? But then you explained it all... I am still wondering if fire hydrants are blind and maybe I should not seak up on them anymore.

I've never seen one of those on a fire hydrant. Wow!

Did your fire hydrants really get buried in snow this winter? I didn't like using the ice melt stuff; it leaves a while coating on the hard wood floors if your walking in on it. And twice a day I take the dog for a walk so it's not just my feet but four dog paws of white stuff trampled all over if we used that. Ice was ok as long as I had the shoe guard things I didn't slip. We had about an inch of snow over night a few weeks ago which melted on it's on within a few hours. It's been since mid March that we've had no snow....
