Here is the updated story. I guess UPS sometimes makes two attempts in one day ! !11
I din't hear teh UPS truck rumple up because I was just on the edge of a nap, but I SUDDENLY heard him bang on the door.
By the time I got to the door, he was walking back to the truck, but I had the door locked and had to rush back to get my keys
I got back to the door, ran out into the snow in my socks yelling at the truck as he was starting to roll out the driveway. (funny how this is pretty much like the thread started out).
Luckily he heard me screaming and stopped!
..... so it made it without gettting smashed, and it was totally ice cold, so I'll have to check it out fully l8r on.
it made it in one piece crap i had it insured for $10,000
