This weather has caused havoc for everybody, roads are extra dangerous, people are stranded, and well some things need to be adopted - NOW

I have come to realize how much I take things for granted on a daily basis, like getting into my car and pulling out of my apartment complex. I went to work yesterday morning with no problem, then the blizzard kicked in. So I left early for the day, arrived home safely to my garage, then sat back and watched the snow come down, and twenty-four hours later it continues on. One thing I found out for sure was that until the snow plows show up, I'm not going anywhere. This morning I found myself in 3-4 feet of snow just outside my building. This blizzard has caused havoc for everybody, including the Bismarck fire department. Our help is needed for adoption. Adopt what?

Take a fire hydrant and do a little housekeeping

The Bismarck Fire department needs our help. According to kfyrtv.com "They’re asking you to help clear the more than 4,500 fire hydrants around Bismarck, keeping them accessible in case of emergency" The firefighters have a problem called "Adopt a hydrant"

Any fire hydrant that is covered like this can seriously slow down a firefighter's job - so our help is needed to clear the snow around the hydrant, and pave the way for a clear path to the street. I trudged through about a half-mile from my apartment and every fire hydrant was almost swallowed up.
