Survey Results – The question was, “If you live in Woodstock, did you realize it is your responsibility to dig out your snow-covered fire hydrant?”
No: 13 (32%)
Yes: 28 (68%)
Thanks to the 41 readers who responded to this survey. Two-thirds of you knew it to be your responsibility; one-third did not.
If there are 7,000 households in Woodstock (probably feer buildings, considering multi-family dwellings), then 2,300 building owners don’t know to dig out.
Of course, there is not a fire hydrant in front of each dwelling, so the burden falls on the poor guy (or gal) in front of whose house the hydrant is.
Maybe this is a good reason for neighbors to pitch in, when it’s time to dig out the hydrant during/after the next big snow.
