Poor Planning

My “running around the pacific northwest” muscle is sore. After consecutive professional development conferences/trainings in different states/areas I am beat. In my travels I came across a few disturbing pieces I feel compelled to share with the general public.

First alarming image is a sign I found in a cute coastal town.


1) What idiot runs towards the water during a tsunami?

2) Even though the stick person is running towards higher ground it is clear zie has no chance of surviving the approaching wall of water. This sign does not inspire hope for safe evacuation.


3) This sign made me feel bad for the quaint little town. After seen the warning I knew that
they were geographically fucked.
a. (Maybe that is why people like beaches…risks are fun! After all areas that are safe from natural, human, or zombie disasters tend to be lame.)

4) I would bet a large monetary sum that this town considers the sign their emergency management plan. I can just hear the mayor;

“A tsunami sign is how much?!? I know they are rare but do they have
to be that pricey? We will take one, yeah just one; a natural disaster will only hit the area closest to the ocean (even though we are surrounded by water). One strategically placed sign should be enough warning. I would also like to order 50 ‘Keep your dog on a leash’ signs and 50 ‘Don’t feed the wild life’ signs.”

I wish I could quit you (remember move to higher elevation),
Eddie

I know this is a super old post, but I live in the Pacific Northwest.

Since there were those earthquakes recently in the Pacific Ocean, all the news stations have been freaking out . . ."Tsunami Watch 2009!"

Pacific Northwesterners are drama queens. That's why they have those signs up.

Very interesting article. I would love to read the book “Start with Why”, by Simon Sinek. I think he has taken a great topic to deal with. Teaching leaders to inspire others is a good idea to bring up a civilized society. Thanks for sharing. Keep posting.

I actually provided image from the burial container on my apple iphone, the person getting that on the iphone 3gs experienced the actual message “missing plug-in”, with out graphic was connected. Just what connect is essential, and it is the item required own telephone, or maybe could it be something must have recently been dispatched with the picture?

Hi. You have given such an interesting account of the events. The reaction would have certainly proved some of the communities. But personally I feel that you made the right decision. You just need to give it some time to settle down
