How's that again?

   Got the homeowners' insurance bill, which carried a notice:  instead of a flat rate, the deductible would now be a half-percent of the "dwelling" coverage.   If I wanted to go back to the flat rate, it would be an extra $15.
    A bit worried, I take a look at the deductible ... it's a whole $4 higher.

    I think I'll keep the $15, thanks ...

    However, the real price hike hasn't escaped me ... every time the cost of replacing my house (God forbid) goes up, my deductible will go up, too ...  which means more out of pocket should a hailstorm take out the siding and roof ... again.
