We had hail damage a few years ago. All of our neighbors had new roofs, three of them have the same insurance company as we have. (had them for 24 years and this was the first time we called them on our home policy). When the adjuster came out and looked at our roof...We were told it was "heat damage"?!?! Heat damage to asphalt shingles, in Texas? Wtf? We had to appeal and scrap with the agent and the company for several months for them to finally agree that there was hail damage. They changed their mind when two of our neighbors allowed us to show the adjusters where their own company covered the roofs within 40ft of our house. Hmm...

I hear you Zane. They all like those premiums, but the outflow isn't as popular with them, although I have had State Farm for 30 years and they have been prompt, honest, and if anything, over performed on any claim we've had.

Just got home from the 2014 McSam Awards and it was another great evening. 80% of the awards went to my clients, and they were very happy. This is getting to be a habit, a very nice habit.

I've heard a lot of stories like that David. My roofing crew is nothing short of spectacular. We have traveled all over the US and Canada together. There is so much to installing a roof that is pristinely photographable that it's incredible. There can't be any color patterning, irregularity in horizontal or vertical lines. The ridges have to be perfect. I've had them rip all the shingles off a home, or remove all the ridge product, and start again, if everything wasn't flawless.

Occasionally the client would send me out to a part of the country that had a certain regional feel in the landscape and architecture. My job initially would be to find homes that we wanted to re-roof for a brochure or other marketing materials. If the home was right, I had the authority to approve re-landscaping, removing the existing roof, having the product and color that we were highlighting applied, a whole makeover. Amazingly, I felt like Danny Devito and Richard Dryfuss in "The Tin Men", but I really was giving the product away. Most of the time we were trying to showcase a particular product and color, if the homeowner wanted another product or color as the final roof on their home, after the photography was complete, I'd have the crew remove the shingles and re-roof the home with whatever the homeowner wanted. The whole thing seemed way too good to be true for the owners, but it was all on th sup and up. We only had one lady in Ocala Florida that wouldn't trust that we were the real deal. Too bad for her, she needed a roof in the worst way and it was easily 40 grand worth of product, but she turned us down flat.

I've been away for a while and just returned from spring break with the family.
I'm not sure if someone has already posted this, but here is a collection of video that someone made of some major crosswind landings and takeoffs.

I want to know how many airsickness bags were used!

What a gorgeous county Steve. Poor weather notwithstanding, your landscape images are typically excellent Zim. Any chance there will be another great camera come available after you get back? I recall benefiting greatly from you last trip to NZ

Take a few minutes to watch this video. An amazing story of aircraft recovery.



Thanks, Jeff. Nothing new to add: more fog and rain yesterday, more fog and rain today. It's getting old...

But, holy cow: hats off to the salvage team that pulled off rebuilding a DC-3 on a glacier in Antarctica! What a crew of can-do people.

In this case, it probably only costs 1,000% more to go first class!
