Signs of Spring, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

This is the clearest indicator that another winter is over and the good weather has returned:  the Harleys take to the roads again with their brilliant polished chrome and loud exhaust pipes! The more traditional indicators follow below.....










What's wrong with this picture?  It's the yellow fire hydrant with the blue top.  What's up with that?  Why not the regular old red fire hydrant?  Is this change for the sake of change?  Well, it's not.  The color of the hydrant body and cap communicate information to the firefighters.  In this situation, the yellow body indicates it's a private hydrant connected to a public water main and the blue cap indicates the quality of  water flow rate.  How about that?
