There's Always a Clause...

Tom and I met with our home owners' insurance rep. Of course, halfway through the conversation he mentioned the tiny wee clause called the "pollutant exclusion clause." In other words they needed to determine if petroleum was a pollutant, and if they found it to be one under North Carolina law, our damages would not be covered. I wonder if they would take testimony from Bill. He seems to think Petroleum's just dandy.
