Similar to Driving off with the fuel pump, another one of those things you hear about or see in the movies, but never with your own eyes. During a trip to Santa Cruz, Ca. my wife and I happend to drive past an intersection where someone had just run over a fire hydrant. It was quite a sight. The tower of water was about 8 feet wide and reached 10 feet above the power lines! Water completely flooded the street. There was a school playground in the background and the kids we going nuts from behind the fence.
