You’re not foolin anyone.

I told my father the other day that I am still holding a grudge over when he commented to me about how unattractive he found all the cell towers that crop up everywhere. Cell towers? I asked. He pointed one out to me… and now I ALWAYS notice them. Thanks, Dad.

That’s not to say there isn’t sometimes an effort to disguise them, or put them in odd locations. The pictured one is on Fairfax County Parkway and pretty effective about half the year, when it’s surrounded by trees with actual needles. I bet the people who put it up thought they were damned brilliant in June. In January… a little less so.

What’s really amusing is that just 1/4 mile farther south the trees are evergreens and don’t lose their needles, so this disguise, which is obviously green year-round, would blend in well there.

    I love the ones in SoCal that look just like Palm Trees.

    Do you want to talk on a cell phone? Do you want a good connection? What are they supposed to do? Its a necessity and thats the way it goes.

    quite whining.
