    Damn...even the plow drivers feel sorry for you. ( but that's understandable )

    What is warm? If I spit outside it takes about 2 minutes for it to freeze. That’s if I don’t foul it up n get it on my beard.

    Surprised he came back.

    Plows take out mailboxes all the time up here.

    I just got back Sunday from Florida and everyone down there was whining like little girls because it was 55 degrees!

    We were on the beach in shorts and t shirts.

    not to change the subject entirely, I had left my car at O'Hare long term parking one winter for a couple weeks. When I came back the car had clearly been hit by a snow plow. The trunk lid was bashed in and had yellow paint all over it and you could see the snow removed around it where the plow path was. Anyway, I took lots of pictures and filed a claim against the parking facility. Their answer was "We are not responsible for the damage, we were not in control of the vehicle" I think they meant they weren't in control of my vehicle but they obviously weren't in control of the plow either! Anyway, I fought it but never got a dime. I did quit parking there however. I'm sure they noticed me missing...
    Tying this together with Mark's story, last winter my neighbor left his car running in the driveway. It had snowed the night before. Somehow his car slide down his driveway, across the street and took out my mailbox as it landed in the ditch in front of my house. Took us a while to get it out of the ditch. My mailbox was destroyed.
    Okay, back to Mark's mailbox.

    those all would qualify and we don't really have a dedicated snow plow in KY. They just stick a blade on the garbage truck!
    But judging by the dent in my car I'm guessing it was something like this that hit my car
