When the 'Big One' Comes

It seems I was uptown at the Royal Mall twice today.

In the Mall

First, I took Jay's bus pass and dropped off a photocopy of my present homeowner's insurance at the place I buy auto insurance. I really can't remember how I took out our original condo insurance because it was so long ago. I may have telephoned and received paperwork by post. I have used TD Insurance for years now. I figured I would see if Westland Insurance could match my coverage and price. If they could, I assumed I might as well deal locally and occasionally see a person in the process. I started to walk home and had made it all the way downtown before a #106 arrived.

The second time I went up was to sign a piece of paper and put a new policy on my card. I drove. In between, there were a number of emails and at least one phone call. I'm tired although this errand should not have taken much effort at all. I still need to check with our resident manager to remind myself what, if any, extra coverage is needed for earthquake protection. Afer all, this is British Columbia! Depending on what I learn, I may need to modify my decision and/or policy.
