Mailbox to Rubble

Erin built our mailbox himself. It is a beautiful big brick mailbox. It was built on top of a 6 inch thick slab of concrete burried just under the grass. It had a cinder block with poured cement center and had a brick exterior. It was 5 feet tall and about 3 feet wide. As you can see from the picture above, it was a sturdy little thing.

Well, this is what our mailbox looks like now....

Apparently a drunk driver hit our mailbox last night. Erin got up this morning to head to church early since he was playing piano this week. He walked outside and found this mess. We have no idea how the car that hit it was able to drive away. The thing had a concrete center! We can't believe we didn't hear it but we are both very sound sleepers. We are just thankful that Home Owners is going to cover it. It is about a $2000 mailbox if you have a stone mason build it.
