The street names and addresses are written on these poles, which I have never seen taken. The poles are white, the names (letters) are written vertically in orange.


I've seen ornage poles with black lettering. Or I may be insane.

When people tape flyers over those, I move them to a place where the address is not covered up.

No, I could easily be misremembering the colors.

I am glad to hear there is another place to look for the address on a street sign. I'll be sure to look for it this year.

Nice work Sail Man. Only if the street names went to M. :? :D Perhaps next year.

The street names are in alphabetical order so that emergency responders can navigate easily to a scene from what I have heard. Imagine if you had to memorize a new crazy order of names from Esplanade out every year. Standardization helps for efficient operations. Reading a map takes time and sometimes time is critical in an emergency.....Sometimes not.
I only had the planet thing down at the end of the week just in time for the signs to come down.



Ok Ok.......

To use it in a sentence: 'Liminal' is so 1999.

Oh sorry honey, I sprayed my Liminal all over your face. Here, let me get you a towel :mrgreen:

Savannah, I can't believe I never told you about the orange markers on all the intersections. I guess since you have things so well in hand that I thought it inconceivable that you might not know this tidbit of knowledge.
