    That's too much snowfall to be trying to operate in if it ain't life or death.

    According to the headline I thought maybe a skinny polish guy died. So I clicked on it to discover a light POLE was down.

    I wonder if the driver who hit the pole was a Pole? Let’s take a poll.

    Not one single driver has a plow on their vehicle. Presuming the light pole wasnt behind the suv, it wouldnt be that hard to shove the pole out of the way with a plow.

    at least the poles for the past several decades have been "breakaway" light metals, rather then the old cast iron or steel.

    i had seen way too many vehicles wrapped around those old poles.
