Whoa. A fire hydrant outside our office just burst!

My car was fairly far away, but I had to step in 2" of water to get to my car. One guy was soaked in about 8", and his car probably had some stinky Milpitas water in it already. The fire department is looking for the correct valve to shut off this spring (which is spraying probably some 20' in the air).

Then they told us that an electrical ground fault is involved and we should stay out of it (for fear of electrocution, I imagine). I used a digital camera to catch some images and movies, so let's see how they turn out later!
