Mailboxes Breaking Due to Amount of Snow and Snow Plows
URBANDALE, Iowa -- All of this snow is taking its toll on neighborhood mailboxes. Mail carriers are trekking through some of the thickest of snow, and those in mail trucks are having trouble reaching the mailboxes. The City of Urbandale says these are not the only problems. Snow is starting to pile up to the top of mailboxes, which puts a lot of pressure and weight on the posts, causing them to snap.
