FOLLOWUP: Driver-damaged mailbox replaced

If you’ve been reading WSB for a while, you know mailboxes can be Big News sometimes. Thanks to Peter for the tip on this one at 42nd and Alaska in The Junction. It replaces one knocked over by a driver in late July. Despite the recent reports of USPS turmoil, that’s actually a relatively fast turnaround time – some mailbox replacements in recent years have taken about twice that much time.

    Yes, a pleasant surprise. Guess I was too pessimistic when I figured it would just disappear into the torrent of all the others that are getting decommissioned.

    There are many of that type available, as USPS has been removing them for many years. It is the “drive-by and deposit mail” types that are difficult to source.

    Nice, I hope the driver was required to pay for the fix.

    I can tell you that the Drive Thru Mailbox at the Georgetown Post Office on Orcas Street has been out of order for a few weeks now.  Nothing looks wrong with it nobody hit it.  This comes on the heels of when DeJoy was put into office and the Georgetown post office if you went in to mail something they claimed that their Machines were down and you could only mail something if it already had postage on it.  This lasted about a week & 1/2.  Something is sure fishy with the Only outside Post Office Box being taken out of service.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
