As has been the case the last several times I've cut the grass the yard had debris in it, though this time it was rather less an issue, some trash and a table...no sinks or iron bars or anything....
Oh...and a hibachi...(I don't own a hibachi)
Wait, whats that beside the hibachi?
A first aid kit....and books....
The interior is trashed.
But in a very strange fashion.
The intruders had busted out the window of the rear door and unlocked it. letting themselves in. They then got medieval on my stuff.
Note the stuff that is still there...vacuum, old BW TV.
Magazines, roman albums, manga, and nonfiction books...torn and scattered.
Missing, the DVD player, ALL my tools as well as some of my dads, the single shot shotgun, and some metal Toho Monster models. They left the TV, the stereo (but smashed it, possibly trying to unhook it) and many DVDs but they broke quite a few. The American flag laid out flat on the floor, next to the gaping hole under the broken out window due to the fact that it has rained torrentially here several times over the last two weeks. This window was, evidently well placed to recieve it (there is no tree outside of it) There was still standing water in the bathroom, but here the floor had fallen out.
The water damage is actually worse than either the burst pipe (which was under the trailer in any event) or the burst water heater or the pipe that popped off and shorted the last water heater.
Lots of stuff moldy or water damaged and comics thrown to the 4 winds. DVDs cracked, out of their cases, and just chaos....but the mystery hibachi with the burned books is the weirdest thing. This was utterly random...they left the laserdisc player for instance, but I cant find an LD they didn't break.
What in the HELL? Newport News cops see a lot of weird, but this had the policewoman scratching her head.
Oh and they smashed all the external lights.
The adjuster comes to adjust Tuesday, (in the middle of one of my classes ...natch). I'll be quite surprised if I get anything though, my deductible is high and the coverage is minimal.
On the way to school I got caught in the mother of all traffic jams because the local traffic infrastructure imploded...so I missed school.
The day was a TOTAL loss.
Man, things just haven't been going well for you, have they?

Some pond-scum came in and wrecked your stuff, and now the insurance company has a responsibility to cover it - since you make monthly payments to them to ensure that they do just that.
On the other hand, I am really, really, really very sorry that this happened. It really is the total suck.
