I just happened to look out the window at an opportune time and noticed a rush of water in front of our house unrelated to the spring showers we've been experiencing. At first I thought a water main broke, as they have been working on a project to upgrade the mains for some time now. Turns out it wasn't a break, but it was indeed related, as water was being flushed through the fire hydrant on the new main. Trouble is, the only thing the guy who opened it did to direct the water flow was to lay a shovel right below the hydrant to prevent the hydrant from flooding its own base, and it was all running into our lawn, which is the low point in the area. Luckily the guy returned to remedy the situation moments after my irate call to the Department of Public Works, but he was particularly unapologetic about my potentially flooded basement or anything... he just seemed mystified that the water was collecting in my yard... apparently he was taught water runs down the street, rather than downhill.
