    Someone or some group has been painting some of the traffic light controller boxes around here. I noticed today that one was signed Cherie.

    What a lovely project. I hope it doesn't trigger some officious bureaucrat...

    Two of those photos were from right in front of City Hall. I don't think anyone will complain.

    A decade or more ago, my hometown hired a few high-school students on a summer works project to artistically paint all the fire hydrants on the main streets through town. They were lovely (sorry, no pics) but I wondered at the time whether there would be issues about visibility for the local firemen. Then I talked with a buddy whom was the deputy chief of the local VFD, and he put my mind at ease. "It's a small town," he said, "we know where all the hydrants are."
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    The traffic signal boxes around Seattle have been getting a similar treatment.
