Extreme weather, especially the kind of rare heat we've had the last two days, brings out the melodramatic in people.
And sometimes the mischievous.
We spotted this amazing heat-related story today on KRON4: some prankster re-programed the electronic street signs warning residents that the city has closed down, because it's "too damn hot."
The new message greeted commuters along Van Ness and Green Street this morning. What it should have read was some kind of notice about a planned street closure this weekend, according to the news station.
"Someone obviously has our combination and played a little prank," sign owner Alan Beck tells KRON 4. "We just have to change the combination on our locks is all but we've got a lot of them around the city so it's going to be quite a chore."
Currently, it's 80 degrees in San Francisco. Just think of what kind of trouble we could get into if the temperatures reached triple digits.
