Bad News

. Tuesday, December 04, 2007

My parents got back from their trip to South Africa and came home to a broken furnace (was 41F in the house) and this in their backyard. My dad just replaced the roof on the shed this summer.

Oh dear. I trust they have insurance? Not a thing one wants to come home to!

Your parents travel a lot, don't they?

Insurance will cover the damage (minus deductable). The tree was dead and is not on my parents' property. The insurance company is going to contact the owner of the land (a large wooded area) behind my parents' house. The insurance company said that it's usually pretty hard to get them to pay.

My parents travel quite a bit and go on at least one big trip a year. They will be going to India in Spring 2008. You name a country and they've probably been there.

Hah! Now they've got some firewood to heat their home with. :)

Seriously, it could have been SO much worse.
