Proper Use of an Anchor
If you live in PEI, like my sister, here's an old Navy trick for you to use during the current storm - tie the chain attached to a sturdy anchor around one leg.
Here are photos of an anchor or two that ought to do the job, from Irvine, Scotland.
And if that don't work I say, "Grow yer finger nails really long, in case you need to dig into the ice as the wind blows you out to the mailbox."
