Someone over at the Oconee County Sheriff's Office has a sense of humor. At least we hope so.

A Facebook message posted around 8 p.m. on Wednesday said, "The Oconee County County Sheriffs Office announces that Valentines Day has been CANCELLED from a line North of I-16 to the Georgia/Tennessee border.

Men who live in the designated "NO VALENTINES DAY ZONE" are exempt from having to run out and buy lottery scratchers and Hershey bars from the corner stores until February 18, 2014, due to ice, snow, freezing rain."

While we were unable to reach the office for comment, we assume that the point of the message is to encourage people to stay off of roads in the county after winter storms brought storm and ice on Wednesday.
