Tonight, from a parking lot at Casa Linda Plaza (where I was standing around with some running buds following a workout) I noticed a geyser of sorts shooting out of the grass in front of Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake. Initially I thought, oooh pretty … like a Dallas version of the water show outside the Bellagio in Vegas. But then my left brain kicked in and I thought of those City of Dallas water restrictions we run in the magazine every month.
“What’s up with that?” I asked no one in particular, and a fellow member of the group says, “yeah, we have a water show every night for weeks now”. Apparently when the automatic sprinkler system turns on appropriately at sunset, this one spigot goes haywire blasting untold loads of precious H2O into the air and most of it appears to hit the parking lot rather than the grass. Another person confirmed that it's been going on a while and added “seems like a hospital ought to be able to fix something like that pretty easily”. I agreed and made a mental note to write about it here (and what do you know I actually did). So if anyone over at Doctor’s Hospital (the birthplace of my two children and a place I’m pretty fond of overall) is reading, can we get that sprinkler fixed?
