Re: Why the new forest fire sign? and New forest fire sign built at little cost

Hey! I was wrong! And as I wipe some figurative egg off my face let me congratulate the people reported by Mr. Walton and Mr. Westerhaug in their letter correcting my criticism. And let my congratulations include my admiration for their ingenuity and initiative in crafting such a sign without a consultant.

But please, in addition to indicating the risk on the east side of the sign perhaps they could make both indications larger, as I believe the intended function of the sign is to advise citizens, particularly those driving by, of the wild fire risk level. And let me be bold enough to suggest that the size and location of the rating be large enough so that a driver can see it at a glance and not have to search for it.
