There are a million things we love about the new area we live in except for one thing... the snow removal system. It snows like crazy here and yes, it is beautiful but it's a big pain.
We received a second notice in the mail from the Postal Service that they need a clear, full approach and exit to our mail box (meaning: get rid of the huge snow bank in the way). I completely understand.
The problem is that when the snow plow actually makes it to our cul de sac, they push the snow right in front of our house blocking the mailbox. It's not a little pile of snow, it's huge. I just spent 20 minutes with a shovel chipping away at the ice and it didn't make a dent. Grrrr.
While I appreciate when the snow plows decide to make a rare visit to us, I don't understand why it needs to be pushed directly in front of our mailbox. HeRoos and I could spend hours moving the snowbank only to have it replaced as soon it snows again.
Maybe, we'll take my mom's suggestion and put a temporary mailbox in a bucket filled with cement that can be moved around.
