In other news, a power surge last week fried Mother of the Child's almost new washer and dryer. Repair bill will be $1,300, about what they cost last summer. Called the insurance agent, who informs me this is covered on the homeowner's policy on our duplex, subject to a deductible. On a flyer, called the power company and told them my story. I wound up talking to an insurance adjuster who manages their liability coverage. Lo and behold, as of today I have been informed that MotC will be receiving a new washer and dryer at zero cost to me.
Sometimes the universe just opens up and smiles.
