    I'm driving along and see this sign that says watch for wind on bridge. It seemed strange to me but I had time to kill so. I figured I would give it a try. I stopped on the bridge, sat there a good hour, but didn't see no wind. Just to add insult to injury there was a sign saying dip just past the bridge. So I guess they pulled one over on me.

    That’s because you can’t ‘SEE’ wind.
    Sign should have said ‘FEEL FOR WIND ON BRIDGE’

    They’re the dips, not you driver. :)

    You have to be more patient. Watch test pattern long enough and you'll see the chief blink:)

    And those Dip signs, the time someone does a really silly thing, they supposed to get out and stand in front of the sign and take a picture to post.

    Pennsylvania has signs that simply say BUMP. They'd save money by making signs say CAUTION: SMOOTH ROAD AHEAD

    I live in the foothills of Colorado, you can see when the wind, a huge cloud of dust and trash starts heading your way, then when the trees start falling you know you in trouble.
