And I thought that fire hydrants were red ...

I think most are red. They can also be white, orange or bright green! I've even seen bright blue. Just depends on what the local fire dept. likes, I guess. As long as you don't park in front of one, you're OK. I've seen a couple of photos where the firefighter had to knock a car's windows out to pass the hose through for a fire. Hehe...oops!

For some reason our hydrants are buried in the road. There is no law about parking on one! It seems silly to me, some of my friends are firemen and it is very frustrating for them, although they are allowed to remove the vehicle, they must be careful to cause minimum damage??

Okay now I'm confused. This is Oregon right. So how come the yellow paint on the curb, up here it's red, back east it's orange.

(o_O)

I can't keep falling in the street and tripping up sidewalks like this.

Lol! Poor Michael! Yellow means loading zone. You can't park there, only pull in briefly to let someone out or load something/someone into your car. Red is no stopping whatsoever. Hmm, orange, I have no clue what they do back east...

Like with fire hydrants, there is no single national standard for laws, colors, signs and other highway stuff, but there is enough similarity that it's not hard to figure out. The US is really like 50 small countries, in some ways.

This town is really peaceful ...

Klamath Falls, Oregon, USA. Yes, it's peaceful downtown because most of the stores are out of business! Anyway, it's a very typical American Main St. : )

It looks very nice. I like the brick crosswalks. Sorry about stores going out of business. A mall on the edge of town, maybe?

Several factors: it's a lower-income town than it was in decades past, then Walmart came to the suburbs. Also, the newer small business people have no clue how to run a retail operation (such as have enough operating capital for at least a year), so they fail almost immediately. It's so annoying!
