Say whaaat? Does this sign make any sense? Do you see any trees? In the middle of Cherry County, Nebraska, known for its wide-open spaces, I came across this sign.
I double-checked the map and made sure of my position. Yup, smack dab in the middle of Cherry County. Then, I took a 360 degree view of the horizon. Not a tree in sight. I’ve written about Cherry County before (click here and here), and it’s certainly not famous for its trees.
I continued my drive, composing in my mind a liar-liar-pants-on-fire letter to the feds about their misleading sign, when I came upon some trees. To be fair, lots of trees, but not my idea of a forest. You could actually see the forest for the trees. The feds probably felt sorry for Nebraska’s reputation as a flyover state and lowered their standards for this one.
