I don't know why, but I find this sign hilarious:

I guess a pass means something else over there (Florida). :D

forget chains, they don't even "dare" to drive in the south when there's an inch of snow on the ground; it's too dangerous. you'd die laughing at the pictures on the front page of the newspapers of "major winter storm" with a kid sledding and the bare grass showing his decent route.

Yep, I spoke with family & friends back home in TN this morning. They all had 'late-starts' or 'snow days' today. They got about an inch last night! They are also complaining that it is cold...36 degrees! :shock:

0.9 meters :shock: :shock:

I agree Scott, that sign is ludicrous.

Pass (n) - 4. way through mountains - Geography a way through or over mountains.

Perhaps just to either side and barely out of the photo are some of Florida's largest mountians. Oh wait, the state high point is only 345 feet.

Is that a snow drift under the sign in that picture?

I know why: It is hilarious! I guess they have a sign budget, and it just has to go for something...
I have been to the mountaintop, and I have seen the force
and the power that animates the universe. That may not
match up with your anthropomorphic or teleological idea of
what "god" is, but it's good enough for me.

Doesn't look like 4 wheel drive is needed!

That has **GOT** to be a joke...
