Around Town - Part 2

Local High School.








Sumac bush.





Close up of a New England stone fence/wall.








Fire hydrant with red marker. Sometimes in winter snow covers the fire hydrants so the red marker is needed to show their location. After a snow storm the fire department shovels the area around the hydrants.

Interesting views of your town, sbk. Re the fire hydrant marker: woah... I can't even remember there being such in Wisconsin! :O

Hi duriandave,

The Tiny Theater shows movies. There's a small liberal college here so the movies are geared for the college crowd. Also they show b & w classics. The thing is the theater opened just as the college was going on summer break, showed movies part of the summer then closed with a promise to reopen soon. I hope this means sometime this fall. They even have a popcorn machine. I'll take interior shot when they reopen.

hi ytsl,

One evening last winter after a snowstorm I noticed several volunteer firemen with shovels digging out the hydrants. The reason I noticed them was that they also drove around town in one of the big red firetrucks. Usually two guys with shovels drive around in a pickup truck. Small town life :-)
