Our weather this winter has been all over the place. We've had snow, rain, warmth, and plenty of wind.
A couple of years ago friends of our gave us their basketball standard. It's the kind that you fill the base with water so it holds it in place. It was pretty old, especially since it was their son's, and he's in his 20s.
We noticed at the end of the summer last year that the post had rusted through. It was being held in place by two metal arms, bolted from the post to the base. We didn't worry about it falling forward since the arms wouldn't allow that, but there was always the possibility that it would fall backwards. So with the latest winds this is what happened.
