We had a temporary geyser today in the National Grove of State Trees
There was an unfortunate interaction between a mower (contract) and a water pipe today and.....well, actually it was spectacular. Everyone who saw it thought it was beautiful and wondered if we could keep it. Facilities came quickly, shut the water off, and it looks like a fairly simple repair. The grass had grown so tall that the spigot wasn't readily apparent......we have some serious water pressure! It's difficult to see the top of the geyser against the milky sky but if it wasn't 100 feet, it didn't miss by much. Good times.
