On the way home tonight I traveled a route I don’t normally take in order to stop and get some fabulous bread. As I was driving down the road, I started to notice that every half-mile or so there was a sign posted that read “Evacuation Route” with what looked like a snowflake or an asterisk (maybe a modified nuclear symbol?) in the lower corners. I’d never seen these signs before, they’re brand new. The road I was on is one of the major arteries leaving the city. I’m wondering what the evacuation route is for, a terrorist attack? Where does the route end? After seeing the third sign it occured to me that I was traveling north. Strange, I thought, that the evacuation route was to the north because in 20 miles you’d be swimming in Lake Ontario. I’ll have to follow it sometime to see where it really ends.


  1. Hmmm…maybe whoever put up the sign is hoping for a lemming effect into the lake. *shrug* let us know what you find.

  2. lol @ Roni. i remember seeing them in Houston. they were to direct you away from an incoming hurricane. it would be interesting to find out what they’re for in your area.

  3. I have seen those too… mostly in Florida but also have seen them in parts of Ontario – lemme know what you find out 🙂
