I’m putting together a presentation of reader submissions of a single picture that screams “this is what it’s like this winter.” Today, I noticed this mailbox in the neighborhood which, although you can’t tell entirely by looking at this picture, is now completely encased in ice — the only thing visible is the door.
Unlike mine, which is dutifully shoveled out after each storm, this one is fully protected from plow damage now by the glacier that is growing around it.
Send your submission to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
