BARS::CO Hwy-13 with Parking Signs in Craig, Colorado

This pole of signs were found in Craig, Colorado.

The pole of signs say...

   +---------------------+
   |    JCT CO Hwy-13    |
   -----------------------
   |      No Parking     |
   |      3am to 6am     |
   | Nov 15 thru Mar 31  |
   -----------------------
   |     2 HR Parking    |
   |      8am to 6pm     |
   | except Sun and Holl |
   +---------------------+

   the numbers are:  13  3  6  15  31  2  8  6

   the math is:
      sqrt(sqrt(13 + 3)) + sqrt(sqrt(31 - 15)) + sqrt(sqrt(8 + 6 + 2)) = 6

   observe...
      13 + 3 = 16
      sqrt(16) = 4
      sqrt(4) = 2
      31 - 15 = 16
      8 + 6 + 2 = 16

   [exercise] Find math without using the sqrt() function.

Ding... ding... ding...

This BARS (Basic Arithmetic Road Sign) was BARS #300.
