When the winter winds blew through the Greenhorn Valley several weeks ago, Tim Ibanez wondered if he would survive. “At one point when the winds were at their highest, I actually wondered if I would get out alive,” said Ibanez. He escaped unscathed but his mobile home in Applewood Estates sustained severe damage. The deck covering ripped loose and was blown some sixty yards away. Little of the dwelling’s roof remained in the aftermath of record Southern Colorado winds.

Damage to Ibanez’s home attracted the attention of social media and, eventually, electronic media as well. “When the cameras were rolling, representatives from a roofing company in Colorado Springs promised to repair the roof for little or no cost. My insurance company told me the repairs were covered. What a relief that was,” said Ibanez. “But, after the report aired on television, the roofing company never returned any of my calls. They wouldn’t answer messages left by the television station. My insurance company decided the repairs were not covered after all.”
