|Hydrants located at Lunt and Ravenswood|
Caught for the first time in the midst of asexual reproduction we see a fire hyrdrant from 1939 has sprouted runners with the new offspring about to hatch. The new hatchling is dated 2012. This happens about every 50 to 100 years. Typically the old hydrant takes between a month or two to wither away and die, sad, but the hydrant lives on inside the new hydrant much like in the movie Being John Malkovich.
Note bene - The 1939 hydrant is of the variety that has the collar surrounding the pentagon shaped nut to prevent ragamuffins from turning the water on.
