Here's a 'tired' rural mailbox on the way into the city. Out this way, mailbox repair, after scuffling with violent snowplow blades all winter, is a spring ritual. There are lots of creative ways to attempt to secure the delivery box. A pole hole in the ground, a bucket filled with cement with pole, a mailbox suspended from a tree with swinging chains are all ways seen lately to get the mail delivered. Frustrated nerves rural mailbox owners? Hang in there; here's my guess-- mail delivery soon will going the way of the clothesline, 8 track stereo, the rotary phone and the record player to name just a few. Hopefully, snowplow blades won't be engaged this weekend. Forecast: bit o' rain, and maybe, just maybe... ya, you guessed it-- SNOW!
