1-11-09 - Mailbox Damage from City plow
Went out to get paper this morning. Glad to see Plow went by, but then noticed my mail box and the arm it is secured upon had been knocked over and the cover to the mail box (and its connections to the mailbox) had been broken off - also the Oakland Press box had been bent down and was on an angle. I pushed the arm back on the arm and it will be able to be re-secured to main post. As can be seen from the pictures, its not there yet. I found the mailbox cover in the snow about 10 feet from the mail box. Took pictures from all sides. Clearly need to replace the mailbox. Note that the path of the snow plow headed back away from the edge of the road after it hit my box! Sure he didn't mean to do it - the box does not hang out onto the road, though it is close.
