how often do you run in to things like this?
last night after dark the neighbor missed the corner with his semi truck and ran over the mail box, and drove so far down in the ditch, (wonder that he did not dump the truck over on it side) took out the water hydrant as well and water was shooting up out of the ground, so I have a mail box to straighten and to put back up and a water hydrant to dig out and replace, the head of the hydrant was destroyed, ( could not even find all the cast iron pieces) and the pipe was bent over, (I hope the pipe in the ground was not damaged), as the hydrant pipe is laying flat, currently I am not need that line, and shut off the valve to it, he jsut missed the Rail road tie I put in to protect the hydrant from farm equipment from the other side. He was clear off the road by the time he hit the hydrant.
I may call the county and see if they will bring out a truck load of fill and move the mail box back off the edge of the road,
some times I get so tired of having to jsut fix things.
The Hydrant is for a stock tank currently not using it.
