Meteor landing ahead

One of the streets in our neighborhood will be closed for construction for a while, so an electronic sign has been set up for about a week to warn people to change their route. As I was coming home yesterday, what I saw on the sign made me laugh. Someone had reprogrammed the sign with an additional message.

The sign still informs of the road closure, but also warns

"Meteor landing ahead" .

I thank the reprogrammer for making my day.

It reminded me of the infamous "The cow is OK" sign and of two other scifi related sign incidents.

Of course, there will always be hackers who enjoy playing with signs. Again, thank you for making my day.
