You Know Its Going to be a Long Time When… May 26, 2006

Construction and a MailboxThis construction trailer appeared behind the physics building a few weeks ago. This is a normal site around any American campus or city, or, well, anything, during the summer. The joke is: There are two seasons: Winter and Construction.

But then something surprising happened. The temporary construction trailer suddenly acquired a mailbox!! I'd never seen that before. I guess it is going to be there or a while! Too bad as it takes up a bunch of parking spaces!

Actually, that’s not a mailbox at all. Construction trailers reproduce by budding off young that are disguised as mailboxes to deter predation by marauding contractors. Mark my words — there’ll be two or three more trailers next to that one before the year is out! 😉

Ha! You are right. It started as one, and in several days had spawned to three! I’m hoping they remain stable or they will take over the whole parking lot!
