Did you put this up before you heard about the Earthquake in Virginia?

Oh never mind. I scrolled down :)

The little town still fears the rocks and mountains falling on them.

Did they have dynamite blasting in the mines all day long?

The color isn't screwed up here either, I suppose. Just another "tweak" to express your aesthetic taste? Or maybe they use baby blue paint instead of white in that town.

Oh, I get it. The owner reserves that space for his Chevy Avalanche.

Thanks. It's 95 degrees today and I had become complacent about the avalanche threat. You are a life saver.

Back in the summer of 2006 I walked through an avalanche chute on the Cathedral Rock trail outside Las Vegas. All around us were the trunks of massive Ponderosa Pines - some trunks were several feet in diameter - that had been snapped off or uprooted in an avalanche one or two winters earlier. It was mind-boggling to realize just how enormous the force of an avalanche can be.

If people would just stop yoddeling everything would be fine.

Hmmmm.....

Prolonged and large accumulation snowfall during a significant amount of the year combined with a steep slope building ~ urban avalanche.

Almighty appropriate warning I would opine.

Well I stepped into an avalanche,
It covered up my soul...

Funny thing about "white" paint (or snow) - it tends to reflect whatever light strikes it. Blue skies, for example, or glowing tungsten filaments...
