• Clyde Brown repairs the cover to his mechanically extendable mail box in South Royalton, Vt., Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018. The cover blew off the electric drill powered mechanism Tuesday evening. Brown created the device, which he powers on timers from inside his house, in 1991 so he can pull the box in out of range of snow plows and does not have to shovel snow away from around the box.
