Hello everyone, I wanted to take a moment to give you guys an update. There have been so many words of encouragement from so many people. Phillip thanks again for your post on Dirt Therapy, your loyal readers have left wonderful, wonderful notes for us and with each one we’ve felt a little better. Things have really started to fall back into place. One of my biggest concerns was the original estimate of damage done by the insurance company. I wondered how in the world we were going to get everything done with the small amount of money that was given to us. This past Tuesday a second adjuster came by and took another look. Evidently she thought our first estimate was grossly under projected and saw fit to give us a huge supplement payment. We now have the money to fix all the damage that was done. Plus! We had heat yesterday for the fist time in nine days! It was wonderful! Sadly they did "Total" my convertible, the repairs were twice as much as the value of my little emerald baby so she will have to be retired at the tender age of thirteen years. It is going to be very hard to say goodbye to something I've pampered for so long just because of extensive cosmetic damages. Chrysler parts are outrageous and she took a severe beating from the flying debris. If I had adequate storage I would buy her back from the insurance company as salvage. Unfortunately, any convertible parked for a long period of time will start to dry rot almost instantly and before you know it all that is left is a crunchy mildewed mess.
