Ending Vacation With a Bang…Literally

In Family, Uncategorized on July 1, 2008 at 5:42 pm


We had a lovely week in Nags Head, and the challenges presented by having both small children and the elderly in the party were minimal.

On Saturday, we closed up the cottage, had a big breakfast at Grits Grill then headed north to Norfolk to visit our old friend, Scott. The drive to Norfolk was uneventful, and as we drove about three blocks from where Richard and I used to live in Ghent, we were tapped by a vehicle running a red light. That tap caused us to slam into a telephone pole sideways at about 35 mph.

We are all ok. Our car, on the other hand, will likely be a total loss. Scary, but now the logistical hurdles are to be crossed. For example, I called our insurance company today to check on the status of our claim, and when the adjuster called back and left a message, she said that nothing had been done with the claim so far and they were missing information from us, and was the car driveable? If so, why was it towed? Grrrrrrrrrr…….

I was incensed, but still able to leave a reasonable message with all info I could offer and stating my expectation that the claim move forward no later than noon tomorrow. We’ll see.
