Spring in Fairbanks reveals all sorts of fun stuff. I took this photo on April 15. The paper is the March 6 edition of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. I think it must have been pushed against the tree by the snowplow. The rather ironic headline read “Just Brush It Off: Residents dig themselves out after heavy storm hits Fairbanks.”
The truly ironic part is that the News-Miner people insisted a couple of years ago that we have a newspaper box attached to our mailbox post. We already had a box, attached to our garage, but pulling into the driveway was too much trouble. The thing is, our delivery person only uses the box IN GOOD WEATHER. We live in Fairbanks – “good weather” is May-July. Apparently, using the box in snowy or rainy weather is also too much trouble.
