If you were driving your car down Highland near Santa Monica Blvd earlier today (maybe about the time I was going to lunch) you might’ve seen some sick waterworks. I’m not sure what happened exactly, but some moron in an SUV managed to smash over a fire hydrant, causing a giant geyser of water to erupt over Hollywood.
It was a pretty amazing sight. What was even more amazing is that not only did firefighters get it all knocked down and under control right quick, but by the time I walked back from lunch there was a brand new fire hydrant all fitted and ready to go! Way to go city. I’m impressed! (more close-up-style pics after the juuuump.)
