Sand!

By ColleenA
Good day....
Thanks for the votes on comments from yesterday's intro to the Namibian desert....another one snapped with my I pad....spotted this sign on the side of the road warning us about sand....to be expected I think.....thought it appropriately silly for Sunday....

I'd move on before they deliver the cement and water, that's a heck of a lot of mixing.

Is it to alert drivers who maybe think it is a mirage?

Very funny.

I think they must have been approached by a brilliant Sign Salesman.
Great for Silly Sunday, Colleen.
I think that is what they call succinct!!! Great for Sunday Colleen.

I think it was interesting to be aware of the presence of sand, and do not see it!
Well that does not say Snow!

A superb Silly Sunday sign Colleen, talk about stating the obvious! This must be the most pointless sign i've ever seen, and I thought the Highways Agency and local councils round here were bad for cluttering up the roads!GrinGrinGrin
