mailboxes askew

Liz West

One of the fine old New England traditions is to straighten or replace your mailbox after the winter. Usually, the box or the snowpile around it has been struck by numerous snowplows until it lists in one or more directions. Some are totally destroyed over the course of a rough winter. In fact, it's not unusual to see carboard boxes wearing house numbers perched atop snowpiles. While on my Thursday walk, I noticed that this group listen in all sorts of directions. The edge of a vertical telephone pole towards the right of the image is pretty much plumb.
