Hurricane Charley, in 2004, tore through Punta Gorda, FL, as I, along with my cat, Amber, were sheltered with Sun staffers at work. I had to replace my roof and drag the pool cage out of the pool and the tree out from the front door. Thanks to my friend Linda Blaize in Colo Spgs, CO, I was 6th on the list of USAA's appraisers. What a great insurance company. I drove home through what looked like a war zone. AND we got the paper out that day and every day after!
