Wyoming Versus Pacific Palisades
Wyoming has Yellowstone Park and Old Faithful. Tourists come from all over the world to watch the water eruption. Traffic is miserable getting around Yellowstone just to observe the famous geyser.
By contrast, by simply mixing a dump truck, a Land Rover and fire hydrant, a spectacular geyser, “Old Faithful, Too,” happened at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and El Medio this afternoon.
Traffic was miserable getting around Pacific Palisades, and unlike Yellowstone, spectators tried to avoid the Palisades geyser. Since there are only three roads in and out of Pacific Palisades: Sunset Boulevard, Temescal Canyon Road and Chautauqua, any disruption can result in gridlock.
On the positive side, enough water shot out of the hydrant to clean Sunset Boulevard. The City doesn’t clean any streets in Pacific Palisades, because we hardly pay any taxes compared to the rest of Los Angeles. (Which is why the Recreation Center does not have handicapped-accessible restrooms or a handicapped accessible playground and the majority of our streets need to be fixed. Or maybe we pay more taxes and get less services? It can all be so confusing.)
The other positive aspect is, enough water ran down the gardens by the Lutheran Church, to create a large river. This saved many of us a trip to the Amazon or the Nile.
