I had just passed two workmen, from a water company, one of whom was measuring using a wheeled "yardstick". It was only a few minutes later that I realised what they were doing; locating all the water hydrants, and chipping away at the ice to check that each hydrant was working properly.

In this photograph, the tiny dots, near the centre, were a family out walking the dog, and carrying water carriers; clearly they had no water at home, and were trekking to a "known" supply, locally.
