That's possible.  About 20 miles north of here they place 10ft 
orange posts as snow markers.  The reason is not that 10ft of 
snow is likely to fall but that snowplows pile several feet of snow 
along the edges of the highway during a normal winter.  The posts 
are particularly handy during whiteouts.  I still shudder when I think 
about the one whiteout I drove in.
