Maybe it just needs a heavier garbage bag.

We had a pedestal around here that was covered, I want to say for years,
though it might have been just a year or two, with a work tent.  If you
have never seen one:

I particularly love "years of service in the field".  I'm guessing they
don't mean *continuous* service.  By the time it was eventually cleared
out, it had collapsed and was somewhat ripped, etc.

Totally unrelated:  Some of the local DSL copper becomes really
unreliable in spring and when it rains.

With 24 million small businesses in the US alone, that's way too many apples.
