So that night, I call AAA again and schedule a new service attempt, which they estimate sometime before noon the next day. My SO borrowed a ride to work and stopped by the car to hide the ignition key inside, in case the tow driver needed it and I wasn't available (the car is stuck about 3 miles away, too far to walk, and the driveway is too slippery here for a 2 wheel drive car). That was about 9:30-10:00.
1 pm rolls by and I haven't gotten a call yet, so I call AAA again to find out what's going on and I am informed that the tow driver couldn't find the car and they couldn't reach me by phone. I know cellphone service sucks out here, but they didn't leave a message on my voice mail, so I was a bit suspicious.
I had AAA schedule yet another service attempt, which they estimated some time before 7 pm. I got a call around 4 that the driver was in the area and couldn't find the vehicle and that maybe the Sheriff had towed it away.
I called the Sheriff's office, and they didn't have a car matching this description. So either the car was stolen by someone with a wrecker in the hour or two between Animale leaving for work and the first time the tow truck got there, or the driver is a moron.
I'm leaning towards the latter.
My SO is going to pass through the area tonight and check to see if the car is there. EDIT: The car is still there. I don't know how anyone could possibly miss it, you can see it from a half mile away!
