Car window smashed again. The last time was July. This time at least they didn't steal the car; they just took the $4 in quarters, destroying the coin tray. We'd locked the glove compartment, so they pried it (mostly) off trying to get into it.

Appointments made for replacements with our insurance blah blah blah. Last year was the first time in over ten years that this has happened - our neighborhood is generally pretty safe. The second time in less than twelve months - I think we're getting rid of the other car and parking this one in the garage full time. I am totally sick of this shit and now that they've discovered this stretch of street as a target, I don't think it will stop.

How will this affect our packing and Beltane attendance next weekend? We know the window won't be replaced until next Wednesday (we usually pack Thursday). No clue yet as to when the glove compartment fix will happen. Theoretically it shouldn't take as long as, say, installing a brand new bumper. But stay tuned, I guess. I'm not wild about packing and driving with a glove compartment dangling from the dash; but I also don't particularly want to miss the event.

Aw, crap! I'm sorry to hear about this. It so aggravating when so much expensive damage is done for so little gain. Seriously, have these people never owned cars of their own?

ugh, that sucks!! sorry :-(

would your insurance cover a car rental over the weekend while your window is being fixed? might solve your packing/timing/driving problem...

It doesn't. We don't have rental coverage because we have a second car (and even then I'm sure we'd have to pay a lot extra to get something tourney-usable). What with the anniversary vacation and PPFN we can't really justify a rental right now.

Argh! That really sucks! I sure hope you can work out a way to come to Beltane.

grr. I hate to say it, but maybe you could duct tape the glove box in place for the weekend? It would be better than missing the Saluminati meeting.

If we don't have the car back by Wednesday, we can't pack on Thursday.
