Light post falls on Missouri State Campus

Shortly after noon yesterday, one of the light posts that overlook the Plaster Sports Complex simply keeled over. The wind and rain wasn’t particularly strong yesterday, so the cause is unclear, but a nearby area of campus has been roped off in case a second light post, presumably installed at the same time, suffers from similar defects.

I didn’t hear it fall but my student workers did, and I grabbed a picture with my iPhone as I walked by later in the afternoon. This post is partially to share the image and story and also to test the camera and WordPress application on the iPhone.

Personal endnotes: there’s no way to set an excerpt or really anything else from this application… I can’t modify the picture much, or set any standard options… Given the phone’s performance on other sites, I’m guessing it would be far better to avoid the WordPress app entirely and just log into the web interface.
