We spent the first day arguing with AAA and about their lack of response.
We fired the first incompetent contractor provided by AAA. At the end of the first day, he left the carpets soaking wet and put 2 dehumidifiers in the whole house and stated he had to wait until Monday to get authorization from AAA to do anything more! This is what we get from AAA after being loyal customers for 23 years.
We decided to call another contractor provided by IRWD. They came Sunday night and pulled out the entire first floor carpet and have been on it since. They have been fantastic so far.
Here’s our kitchen now.
Study…etc. You get the picture.
They have basically removed 2-3 feet of wallboard from the entire first floor.
They are moving fast but it is still going to take about a month.
In the meantime, I keep getting lame excuses from AAA about their response and why they didn’t approve a large claim.
On top of that, they wanted to put us up in one room at the Holiday Inn in Santa Ana. Imagine that (5 people in one room)! The only Inn I’m staying at is the Westin! It isn’t even that AAA will need to pay off any claim since IRWD has already accepted full responsibility.
AAA hasn’t done anything right so far despite having two different adjusters on site. I hope someone from AAA reads this. Whatever happened to “we’re on your side” or you’re in good hands”?

Late last night, a city water main busted causing a flood thru our neighborhood. The City of Irvine, Police and Fire were all on hand to witness the destruction. The 54″ Main was a feed straight from Irvine Lake to a diverter about 100 yards up the hill. The water flowed for about 4 hours while the City of Irvine fumbled with shutting the main value off.
Here are some pics.
This is the main flow in our front yard.
This is a picture of our back yard. It was submerged in as much as 8-12 inches of water in some places.
Unfortunately, after about two hours of flowing water, the water started to seep into the house. First the kitchen and then the family room, study and living room.
Now we are left with the long task of cleanup and rebuild.

Annika started the 2013 Track season with a couple of events. The first was the Timberwolf 5K in Irvine. Here she is with her running buddy Natalie before the race.
Here she is running with the big boys!
She got a 21 something for her first 5K race of the season.
Last weekend we went to Chino Hills for a race and she got a 5:54 in her first 1500m this season. Only about 10 seconds off her pace from last season.

This department store in Pune India decided to ilegally copy a photo from our blog. Anjali’s cousin Parag just happened to be shopping there and came across this picture. Such shameless copyright infringement. It kind of freaked us out but there is nothing we can do about it!
Be careful out there!

Santa came to our neighborhood last night. Annika and Harsheta got to pose with him.
Why in the world does Santa have tinted glasses on?
