Thanks for sharing your story Moose. Good thing nobody got hurt and the police came promptly. One of my habits is never leaving 1st floor windows open at night or when we’re away. Once we’re in for the day we’ll lock the doors too. If we’re going to be away overnight we tell the folks across the way from us and have them pick up our mail and any packages that get delivered. They tell us if they’ll be away too. During the winter I’ll shovel snow to the front door and/or back door and in front of garages for a couple neighbors if they’re away (the driveways being plowed by a contractor) so as to make it more look like someone is home. Note that I live in the countryside and only have a few neighbors, and so we watch out for each other.
