Wordless Wednesday

Remember the post about the victims of the snow plow?  I found a couple more on my walk Monday morning in my own neighborhood!!!   Ingenious temporary solution, in my humble opinion!




  1. Ah, yes, clever. I expect this winter homeowners could have written a volume on “The Destruction of the Mailboxes.”

    • I think you are most likely correct on that!!! I could not see if there was something in the bottom of the trash cans anchoring them in the water but I suspect so. I didn’t want to look too suspicious after all!!! :-0

  2. Pretty darn clever. I guess after awhile you just do what works. A basket by the front door is my mailbox so no worries here…I do remember when it in vogue for for bad boys to knock down mail boxes. Never could understand why that was fun.

  3. The plows always tear up our frontage. Every year we have to fix it. Yes, mailboxes are definitely casualties.

  4. That’s street smarts at it’s finest for you! 🙂

  5. Clever idea!

  6. brilliant thinking!
    BocaFrau: LOL!! nicely done.

  7. I would think that you would not want to have standing water there for too long as mosquitos love that.. Also has anyone thought of placing reflector rods about two or three feet ahead of and out a little toward the roadway from the mailboxes, so that the plow guy “may” avoid the rods and by extension, perhaps the mailbox itself?

  8. Ingenious solutions to this problem!

  9. I like them! 😀

  10. I had to look at your previous post via the link you provided. Don’t know how I missed that one. People get pretty creative when it comes to weathering the snow plow!

  11. That’s really neat.
    We have no such problem here 🙂

  12. I am not sure about having your mail put out like that. I guess it is better than nothing though. We never seem to have had any trouble with our mailbox.

  13. That’s one thing I don’t have to worry about anymore in London.

I love your comments--each one makes me smile and makes a difference for Comments for a Cause! Thanks!
