So as I have mentioned here several times, my experience with my insurance company regarding my Hurricane Irma claim has been very frustrating. The experience has been filled with unreturned phone calls, lack of follow through, and finger pointing. Yesterday I made about my 6th or 7th call to the “escalation department” , asking why the woman I last spoke to over two weeks ago and whom I had left four messages for has never responded to me. I told them I had enough and if I did not hear anything back I was going to be raising a major mess with Tower Hill, since the adjusters in charge of settling the claim are actually subbed out.
The hurricane clarified how Tower Hill sort of sucks. Throughout this remediation process I have not been dealing with any real Tower Hill employees, they all have been sub-contracted. My house was inspected by some company named Integrity Adjusters and the claim remediation is by another company named EA Renfro. Tower Hill seems to just like to cash my checks but doesn’t really have an active role in problem resolution.
So anyway last night I get an email that there is a new electronic document in my account. I quickly pulled it up and saw that apparently my persistence finally has paid off. The document stated my claim has been revised upward roughly $5000 based on the estimates that I provided. Two months plus is a long time to wait but at least the steps we took with both the roof and the pool screen allowed us the time to be patient with navigating these very muddy waters.
Last night I apparently resolved my latest 3D printing issue, this time with my newest printer, the Neva. The clogging problem got resolved by once again using some cleaning filament, the same stuff I used on the CR-10 a few days prior. I also got out on my Mten3 for a little more practice. I am hooking and reversing pretty consistently, able to stay on the wheel more than I need to step off.
This four day weekend hopefully will be fun. Cindy and I are once again going to the Gobble Gobble race tomorrow morning. I am going to run in the untimed four mile fun run. Cindy is going to use her Segway to be a race marshal which should be fun for her. Cindy again is going to have some of her family over in the afternoon for what surely will be another impressive holiday meal.
Over the rest of the four day weekend I have some loose plans which include Christmas decorations, more pool cage screw replacement, and assorted house chores. Of course I want to mix in plenty of Mten3 time, WoW, and whatever else sounds fun at the time.
