Our neighbors tree fell on our house - knocked out all our electricity and was 2 feet from crashing into my sons room right over his bed. Had to pay $1000 JUST to get electric back that day.

Our a/c went out twice in a week in our SUV and had to fight with the dealership who wanted $500 more to fix.

Our sump pump went out and flooded our basement and we lost everything down there.

Had to pay $3500 for new gutters and facia for the house because of the tree.

Last night found a bed bug.....


Things can only get better right!?!?

When it rains it pours! It can only get better from here.
Right after D-day we too experienced all types of issues. IE: My husband ended up in the hospital on life support.
Chin up. After all that I have been through, I no longer sweat the small stuff.
Things that used to make me very upset no longer bother me after all that I have been through this past year.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger..right?

Let's hope they can,
since dday - relocated, our new house survived a fire and mud slide, WH survived cancer, we both are dealing with new jobs (thankfully we have jobs!), aging parents issues, along with all the normal stress of life.
I am very sorry for your loses and I am sending good thoughts for better days for you and your family Princess!
Take care

Sometimes I'm too practical, but - your neighbor is very possibly responsible for fixing the damage to your home, whether he's insured or not. It's probably worth talking to him or to his insurance company.

OMG - that totally happened to us, too!
The a/c in my car went out, my husband's brakes needed replaced, and the washing machine died.

Our insurance company is supposedly going after them because we have proof the tree was bad. Our neighbor even admitted it as he had it chained to his porch trying to keep it upright!!!!! LOL

They didn't give us enough for all the gutters to be redone but they were bad all around the house so it made no sense just to get a portion done.

We are crossing our fingers that someday a check for our deductible will show up in the mail..... Of course it will probably all go into an exterminator.

Oh my...(((hugs))) I get this.

We had so much shit hit the fan after dday that I started to just expect the bad. I was a twitching crazy nut.

Now, almost 6 years later and things have calmed down...some...thank god.

When someone asks me "what's new" now-a-days, if I have nothing to report I say a little thank you to the heavens...cuz nothing to report means nothing bad has happened.

hang in there....

Oh and we had a tree fall from a neighbors yard, it was dead too...we got our deductible back after about a year ...but we got it.

You know the funny thing PP06...I find all the other stuff a bit of a relief in my world!

Bed H brought a couple home from a trip to Ireland about 5 years ago. At first I thought I had flea bites...could not imagine how though. Then...I!

And yes. Things can only get better!
