The time is here for the reflecting sun to flash reflectorized road signs when driving the '48 in a southerly direction. I've mentioned and shown these pictures before but it's a sure sign that summer is coming.

I think you need the right direction of the road and the right height of sun and the right time of day on the right day, right? I see it for a few days each year.

And the signs have to be at the right height.

That happens up here as well. We have lots of low angle sun especially in the winter.
I think you meant driving in a northerly direction with the sun at your back, as it has to be on the face of the sign.

Driving south and the sunlight bounces off the flat windshield just right and hits the sign. The reflectorized sign makes it pretty dramatic.

... or into oncoming driver's eyes. Curved windshields do not generate this problem.

Noticed a bit of snow still on the hillsides?
From W.S.S. and the family has said they've had some late season snow... but that is three of the Montana seasons, right?
