Old News


Old News 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.

The unused paperbox - and the snowed-in paper in the background.
