Tidal wave of foam fills Santa Clara streets

A faulty fire suppression system managed to submerge a large area under a sea of white foam on Friday.
Locals were left perplexed as the thick foam spewed out of the Signature Flight Support building, a business located only a short distance away from San Jose International Airport.

The dense white substance was piled up in such large amounts that in some parts of the street it had managed to completely engulf the cars and had even reached as high as the stop signs.
The company responsible for the mess moved quickly to emphasize that the foam wasn't toxic.

One man even rode his bike through it - much to the amusement of other onlookers.

Yeah. Only Russians and Americans are crazy enough for such stupid feats. P.S: Heck, they have green trees and still walking in t-shirts, while we have had -35C for two weeks! Thankfully, it's getting warmer now, and it's only -15C outside but with a nasty chilling wind...
