2 CUMBERLAND OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY A tree at Torrey Road and Hidden Meadows Drive is doing its best to devour the remainder of a sign that once said, "Danger, bad curve." Hungry trees Landmark sign one of several being gobbled up CUMBERLAND – At the fork of Torrey Road and Hidden Meadows Drive, near the Diamond Hill Reservoir, a tree has all but swal- lowed a sign warning of "danger" ahead. The sign, at one point, showed words above and below, spelling out "danger, bad curve." A recent social media discussion started with a resident mentioning this local landmark and then oth- ers chiming in about various metal objects being eaten by Cumberland's trees. Among those are a mailbox on Pennsylvania Avenue and a sign for Hope Street at the intersection of Highland Avenue. Even a couple of years ago, the top of the word "curve" and bottom of "bad" could still be seen at Hidden Meadows, but curve is now gone and bad has almost disappeared. One resident last week said the area of that danger sign was once her bus stop 50 years ago, and she doesn't remember anything unusual about it then.
