Mailboxes in Maine
Winter is harsh. Mailboxes are particularly susceptible to damage from snow plows, to cars sliding off the road, to snow blowers, and just general seasonal wear and tear. Yesterday, I did a driveby photo study of various mailboxes and the unique ways they are installed, both permanent and temporary.
This one mailbox is my own. I have picked up out of the plow drift three times this winter. It remains bungee strapped to the post. The post itself, having been smacked by the snow plow, is offset about 45 degrees to the left. This one looks like it belongs in Hobbitville.
On my Flickrpage, there is a set titled Spring in Maine. There are several more mailboxes there as well. The junk mail, homer bucket, birch log, and cinder block. What remains to be taken and added are the spare tire, mail truck, timber, dangling, and milk can. Amongst whatever other ones I find while driving.
