Happening over on the ol’ @vnewsuv Instagram

1️⃣ Diana Capozzi maneuvers a chair into her car in White River Junction, #VT, on Tuesday. She got the chair from a friend who planned to donate it to the Listen Community Services thrift store. “I thought, ‘That would be perfect for my porch, I just have to figure out how to get it into my car,’ ” Capozzi said. “I’m just being #thrifty.” 2️⃣ Clyde Brown repairs the cover to his mechanically extendable #mailbox in South Royalton, Vt., on Wednesday. The cover blew off the electric drill powered mechanism the previous evening. Brown created the device, which he powers on timers from inside his house, in 1991, so that he can pull the box in out of range of #snow plows and does not have to shovel snow away from around the box. ⏹ More #vnewsuv staff photography at www.vnews.com/photos.
