In case you missed last week's post, here is a picture taken during the first wave of the three-hour storm: (That's hail on the cars, not snow!)
Today we took the cars to the collision center for appraisal. My love, my 2005 Prius, is in bad shape. The catastrophe team appraiser kept "tsk-tsking" as she went over my car. She estimated between 101 and 150 nickel sized dings, and 9 that were larger, on the roof alone.
After she carefully examined the car and marked down all of the dings...finding that only the right front door had no damage, she sat down at her computer. After putting it all in the system, and checking with headquarters, she delivered the report to me. She told me she had been a bit worried. With the age of my car and the mileage, she thought they might have to total it. I am so thankful that they didn't have to do so. I love my car. I've loved every one of the 151,490 miles I've driven in it. I plan to drive it for at least another 50,000+ miles, or 5 years, whichever comes last. It would have killed me to take a check in exchange for my baby! So, at least in that respect, I can relax a bit, as this hasn't been a total catastrophe for me.
