It is the week of random signs. This one marks the location of an emergency evacuation gathering point. It's in a parking lot. A parking lot of a grocery store. A parking lot of a grocery store in Northern Virginia. This isn't hurricane happy Florida or earthquakey California. What emergency could they possibly be preparing for? Sudden tax increases? A shortage of imported cheese? How alarming would it be to go buy broccoli and park under the SIGN OF DOOM?

Maybe we'll just drive up there and park.

Isn't it flooding there? Wouldn't seeing animals walking past the sign (two by two) be even more alarming :O

Or maybe they could be worried about planes flying into buildings. Like, y'know, happened in Northern Virginia that one time.
