    Went and put out some more intersection signs today. Hope that gets the phone ringing.

    But really what is going on around here. The grass is STILL dormant. I was cutting 6" grass this time of year last year. This is really getting frustrating and there is ABSOLUTELY nothing I can do about it.

    Cmon Mother Nature...give a guy a break!

    I have often wondered...is that okay to do? I would love to stick some signs at the end of highway exit ramps...etc

    What do you think the best days to do those are? I figure they'll only last a day if that. And what did you put on it to get attention?

    I was thinking those yard signs. I think you can get them off ebay, but Im not exactly sure what kind of signs your talking about?

    We put one out last year and it was stolen. Worst $50 of advertising.

    Yeah the signs that people put out at exit ramps. How long do you think they will last before some one takes them down?

    My question is, "Is it legal?"

    I believe they treat them like political advertisments. It's ok to put them up but you are responsible to pick them up as well. If they are littering up the place because nobody tends to them I think they can nail you for littering, and in Washington State I think the fine is about $1000 or more now. $1025 for a lit cig and $1000/90 days in jail for 1 cubic foot of trash to 1 cubic yard of trash, ouch. (I just checked)

    Highly doubt any officer would write a ticket like that, they tend to have more sense than the politicians who pass such laws.
