So, I turned around to take a snapshot of the burned out light. Much to my dismay, the light was back on - likely due to a timer or motion sensor. Alas, I was not inclined to give up so easily. Thus, I determined to drive on some side streets, anticipating I would come across another without too much effort. But I had to be sure it was not timer related.
I did not have to drive far or long. Just off E. Genesee, on Gifford Parkway, I ran into (not literally!) another light that was "deader than a door nail" (internationals - check the idiom). It was below zero that evening, but I ventured forth from my semi-warm vehicle to click 3 quick pictures with my phone. Of course, they were all VERY DARK...because the street light was out!
I made my way home and logged the problem with my best picture onto the website. Very shortly thereafter, at 7:14 pm, I received an auto-response email from the seeclickfix.com site acknowledging my submission. The reply indicated my post had been sent to 13 people as follows:
