Beat the Heat: Artic Ice Sign

It's a scorcher out there today. I am so glad to be writing from the relative cool of the country. I imagine it's pretty sweltering downtown on the pavements. This sign reminds me of the relief a large walk-in freezer can bring on the kind of sticky, humid day as only the Ohio Valley can provide.
This painted sign is not as old as some, but has still been there quite awhile. It was old in the 1970s when I started noticing such things. It's still intact, although for how long I do no know as this structure is currently under development as apartments/lofts and design studios. See an article Here
