I hope our township road crews get some sort of kick-back from the local hardware store for the sales they generate. I understand damaged mail boxes are a risk of living in snowy areas, but our township excels at the sheer number of boxes which can be seen down along the roadside each winter. We're lucky, one nearby neighbor loses their box multiple times each winter. They've finally given up and now just bungy cord the box to the post creating a sort of tear-away mail box. It must be the new mega-plows municipailities use. This was a lot less frequent when we moved here.
