A free carwash

We have a fire hydrant in our corner yard and periodically the City comes by and opens it up. Usually it gushes straight down into the street. Yesterday, however, they attached a bit of a nozzle to it and let it spew straight out.

I was passing through the den, and wondering about the water pressure, when I noticed a minivan stopped in front of the house. Were they crazy? I asked myself. They were sitting in the water! Then I noticed the windshield wipers going back and front. They were getting a quick rinse!

Wonderful! Why didn't I think of this? I grabbed my car keys and treated my car to a quickie wash, too, then watched several other citizens doing the same over the four hours it ran.
