The Ridiculousness

Forecast is for rain, possible sleet/snowshowers. These two runners clearly dressed appropriately. What’s not right? Look again…..hands full of de-icer all over the sidewalk. Except in the massive area the exact same complex is flushing out their hydrant. Snow showers…pay for de-icer…..might freeze…..yet drain the hydrant on a busy sidewalk the same day. I asked the hydrant guy about it. He shrugged admitting he’s just doing what he’s told.
