Biggest water fight west of the Mississippi...




Days before the event




No one is safe


All of Joe Martinez becomes a parking lot


They fill truck beds, trailers with water, bring water tanks, tap into hydrants


A regular parade goes by, then the gauntlet begins

they need to bring in the elephants. (A great way to finish off a 'winter-in-Thailand' to escape USA / and to get annual healthcare 'tune-up'. )
Elephants have a splashing time during the Songkran Water Festival*in Thailand, in pictures - News

Thought CO had a water shortage

That guy who tapped into the hydrant with the pvc pipe and nozzles evidently hooked up a meter to it so he could pay for his usage.

Water is fairly cheap in Pueblo West, sewer usage, not so much. Not much to grow in Pueblo West though, no farming or irrigation used. They plant house seeds in PW as that's the only thing besides weeds and cactus that grows out here.

Besides, the metro dist has to open those hydrants once in a while anyway.

There is a lot of xeriscaping in Pueblo West as well. My highest monthly water bill this year has been about 40 bucks.

If you look at that first pic, you'll see some snow still sitting on top of Greenhorn there. For visible snow to hang around after the 4th means we've made it through the Spring and into the Summer in pretty good shape.

Edit, oh, btw if you have septic tank and leech lines, they don't charge you for sewer.

Great pictures Dog. If I can ever figure how to post pictures to FB, I’ll steal yours and call it “Snow on the Fourth of July” for my New Jersey friends. Now I need a soundtrack for it.

Been in PW for a year. Property tax bill was $2K, try that stunt in NJ. Not once stuck in 10 lanes of DTC traffic. Live right next to that lake in the picture, but hardly ever go because on my previous planet, you go to the park to sit in the shade of huge trees. Here the UV index of 10 is a no.

Finally drove to Bishop Castle. What was that? Fascinating that at a certain altitude, trees magically appear. The drive south on 165 to Rye was stunning, you can see the flat land forever and it is still green.
