This sign seen near my friend Elisa's house raises so many questions it is hard to know where to begin. First, how do you know when is one hour after the onset of the storm? Does onset mean the first flake or when the sky darkens to a certain degree or what? Then, what is the definition of a storm? Maybe what I would consider a prolonged flurry, another person would rate an official storm, or vice-versa. Such confusion. It is hard to imagine what the ticket for a parking violation would say : "Driver parked car 1 hour and 15 minutes after onset of semi-serious storm despite clearly marked sign to the contrary!"
I like that someone with a sense of humor has attempted to "defuse" the confusing sign by attaching to it a pink plastic rose.
