In Case of Fire

  1. Hmmm. Is it me or is that an odd spot for a hydrant? Perhaps there are a lot of accidents on that road that require putting out of flames? I couldn’t see it from the small version so I had to do the zoom in to see the yellow marker. I knew it had to be there given the depths of snow I know you get.

      Yes this surreal placement is a historical artifact . With the closing of the mines and the shift to a retirement living our demographic and population density shifted. The open area behind the hydrant was once a shopping plaza with a grocery store, Bulk Barn, bakery , restaurant and a few other stores. Most stores shifted to other commercial locations in town.

      The side of the road where I was standing had apartment and office buildings; they too are just a memory. The previous post, Slow melt of Spring, show the empty remains . For a community that only dates back to the 1950s there have been quite a few changes buildings and people of come and gone. Those with shorter memories will not even realize what was once there. 🙂

      • That is a lot of change in a short period of time. Things change a lot faster than they use to.
