From the trenches (crawl spaces) of Tacoma, working EQ losses for the Good Hands people. Most are under the very large deductibles, but a thorough inside/outside/topside/underside inspection is made to discover all damage. Per comments on this thread, there are not a large number of claims, and we should be through in a couple more weeks. FEMA is assisting those with no EQ coverage or who need help bridging the gap created by the 10% or more deductibles.

Close to what I heard from the good hands, mainly commerical moving people from standby to ready, lot's of damage, few claims, sigh, how do you learn to flip burgers?

What I learned today
by Ghostbuster, Age 6

During show and tell I learned that this quake is kinda like the Princess and the Pea. If the pea is too deep, (like 30 miles or so), when it moves then the padding on top of it cushion the motion. At least that's what the nice lady at the vendor said. She also said that Good Hands had about 300 losses and no one was going on the road,... yet.

Tomorrow I'm gonna go and apply for that stock boy job at the adult video store. Can I use you guys as a character reference?

David, Mark, Ghostbuster:
Man it is sure good to see your names back on the
thread. I have missed your insight and your
humor. There has been so much crap slinging
it is good to have some comments that aren't
attacking anyone but interesting enough to read.

This is only my opinion but...I think they are waiting to see if FEMA is going to require a letter of denial of coverage after an inspection of damage. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. Remember those with glass coverages may be covered for that and nothing else. So are they going to handle these by phone and save an inspection fee or will they decide to lessen their liability and have them all physically inspected? Too soon to tell and unfortunately I don't have a crystal ball.

I have heard that Big Red will handle this with staff only.

Howza 'bout this for a Stand-by philosophy... Just like in Tex-Mex cooking, it takes a while for the enchiladas to cook.

The rest of you ol' fire horses can fret and stomp around, but for me, I'm gonna go get the truck inspection sticker and some new khaki pants. Oh yeah, and some new shirts.

I imagine that there are a lot more frustrated adjusters now, more than ever. Its difficult to be put on standby or even deployed and then be told not to go. Or worse yet for those on standby, not to hear anything from the vendor.

Here's your chance to both vent and decompress.
