Well, this really isn't fiber related but in a way it could be. On Tuesday our road was cleared of hard packed snow by a contractor for our road service area. Unfortunately the contractor didn't clear the snow to the shoulder of the road and I have a 5 foot wide berm of hard pack in front of my mailbox. The road service commissioner isn't being very helpful and we don't have a way to clear away the ton of snow ourselves.
Now this really bothered me because I'm totally anal about getting mail lately as I'm in a fabric postcard swap plus I'm the hostess of an ATC swap and everyone is mailing their ATCs to me this week. Yesterday I didn't get any mail because the mail lady couldn't reach the box. Total freak out. What to do, what to do?
One cardboard box, three dowel rods, lots of duct tape, and, voila, I have a mailbox extension! Can you say 'redneck mailbox'? The mail lady left me a note saying she thought it was cute. At least it worked! My mail today had one fabric postcard and two packages of ATCs. Big sigh of relief. Until it gets windy!
