When it snows enough and the plow comes along and creates a big pile on the side of the road, be sure to shovel around the fire hydrant!
Even if the hydrant isn't totally covered (which has happened in the past in our neighborhood) it should still be made available to the fire department in case it is needed.
In our neighborhood we always take a minute and make our hydrants available.
At least the ones near my house (hint)!
Ours are painted yellow.
But I have seen different neighborhoods do different things with painting them, perhaps from contests.
The hydrants are painted with designs, like Santa, a zebra, or a peppermint candy, or just different, bright colors.
But it doesn't matter the color.
When it snows, be sure to shovel around the fire hydrant!
My recommendation: when it snows be sure to shovel around the fire hydrant!
