Suds Fill Streets in Idaho, Alaska (http://www.myfoxcleveland.com/myfox/pages/News/Detail?contentId=2928656&version=1&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=TSTY&pageId=3.7.1)

... as a sudsy citrus-scented foam erupted from manhole covers like geysers.
My guess is it wasn't very interesting, and just a way for the reporter to have a little fun with it.

The combination of gravity and churning water whipped the soap into a sudsy foam.
Not that gravity has anything to do with churning water...


They had no smell and were a little bit iridescent.
Just in case you've never seen soap bubles before.


The Alaska situation sounds very similar to a HS-Senior prank when I was young. We had a water chilled AC unit, and somebody got a few boxes of Mr Bubble into it. It was an interesting view, especially with the chiller fan blowing it into the air.

Erhm, how can citrus-scented foam have no smell?
Or am I misunderstanding the fragmented quotes as talking about the same thing when the're no?

Two different situations.
Idaho...citrus sented foam from the sewers.
Alaska...unscented foam from the waste processing aerator.

Then you can sing "Foam, foam on the range, where the suds and the bubbles play".

"It was ridiculous. People were pulling off to the side of the road and running out, trying to catch them," Joyner said.

NO! Why, oh WHY couldn't this have happened right here in Cleveland!! I would have had a field day with the BUBBLES!!! :dance:

which power was there behind the erruption of the foam?
means the foam was much large in the quantity? in gallon or in tons? :)
