This made me laugh

Two mispellings. I'm pretty sure it should be
It was funny enough that I remembered my camera and
pulled over on the very quiet stretch of rural blacktop to take the picture.

Is this for real????

Actually, I find it interesting how different states word the "icy road" signs:

Bridge may ice in cold weather--Arkansas

Watch for ice on bridge--Oklahoma

So, um, is this typical of your state, or just an aberration?

Mary Connealy said...

No, if it was typical I'd have never pulled over, now would I????

I remember a sign on a busy intersection someone in Minnesota, in town. Very official looking.

It said:
Don't Even THINK
Of Parking Here

Janet Spaeth said...

Are you sure it isn't really:

Maybe I see a head?

HUH? Are you sure????

we get the signs road subject to flooding (of course it has to rain to get flooding!)
our wet week has become maybe the odd shower again.
in australia it would be maybe
but then thats australia.

Mary Connealy said...

Great, Janet is writing cozy mysteries with road signs. Hey, why not?

Mary Connealy said...

I remember driving along this unbelievable flat interstate highway along the southern border of American, across either New Mexico or Arizona...I think they called it the Salt Flats. Adn every once in a while, in the dry, barren wasteland, there's be a sign saying, Watch for oncoming Flood Waters.
I just thought, and if we see them, do WHAT? There was no where to go.

I love the signs that say "deer crossing next 2 miles." Do the deer know the boundary?

Mary Connealy said...

I thought of that, too, Darlene. If only the DEER would obey the blasted signs!!!!

Ausjenny said...

oh we get those signs only they say wombats crossing next 2 kms or koala crossings next 2 km.
or the other is kangaroos next x ammount of kms.
