Traffic Signals nSigns

For many years, I've been extremely interested in traffic lights and railroad grade crossings. I've also been very interested in traffic & road signs and in the ways that they've changed over the years. For example, I remember when triangular Yield Signs in Michigan used to be a deep yellow with navy blue lettering. Now they are red & white... and I still miss the old ones!

Take a look at the Header and the Avatar to this group, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what kind of wallpapers to put here.

UPDATE: Since the Avatar & the Header/Cover Image Refused to load properly, I have made them into Wallpapers. If you click on the Journal Post Link in Group Details, you will see them. Also in this journal post are great examples of what I am looking for. You may discover that some of your own wallpapers have been used as examples! :D

Wallpaper submissions will be monitored... but don't worry, this group will be checked very frequently! I'm very excited about this group and am looking forward to seeing what is contributed. : )

Wallpaper Description:

The name of this wallpaper will be changed to "Power Lines & Stop Sign" on Monday the 25th, if I have the power to do it!

It's Sunday the 24th right now, about 1:30am. A "bomb cyclone" is predicted for most of Michigan, today. Once the winds get started, they will reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. People are being encouraged to hunker down in their homes and not to drive if at all possible.

This windstorm is predicted to be going for an 18 hour duration. The last time we had a windstorm this severe, 300,000 customers lost their power! We were one of them. We've been trying to prepare for a power outage just in case.

After I took this photo, I got to playing with it and I liked the results. There is a red stop sign in the middle of the wallpaper, and I mainly uploaded this for my Traffic Signals nSigns group. Since power lines are in this picture, however, I couldn't help thinking about what might happen to our power tomorrow. Stay tuned...

UPDATE
Monday February 25, 2019

As it turned out, 160,000 customers lost power in Michigan, but I didn't lose mine. Over 500 lines went down in the metro Detroit area alone. Trees and branches came down; in fact one branch crushed 3 cars at the same time! That was caught on camera, and it was on the news.

My husband's boss lost power and finally got it back today, and of course many other people were affected. My neighborhood definitely dodged the bullet. For which I am very thankful. :)
