Something I Didn't Know This Morning

No doubt you've seen those colored lines spray-painted on the streets and sidewalks and recognized right away that some sort of work was going to be done. This afternoon, I finally got a chance to satisfy my curiosity about them.

While waiting for the bus, I struck up a conversation with a contract utility worker who was working on those famous fibre-optic lines that are being installed here in the Scenic City, giving us the potential for 1GB through-put speeds. Turns out (as you might have guessed) there is a method to their madness. The colors are as follows:

Red -- electrical
Yellow -- gas
Blue -- water
White -- Sewage
Orange -- cable TV

And now you know.
