STOP Thief!

Well, as my title indicates, we were the victims of a robbery. Boldly done during daylight hours, when hubby and I were out for appointments, BUT, still while my daughter and grd-kids were home as well. She had just got home from the school and
was settling in, when the dog kicked up a row at the front door. So she investigated and could see nothing out of the ordinary. But she did see a car come
up our driveway and disappeared up the street. Today, I asked her a question about
the snowblower we have and whether her husband had put it away in the shed. He said
yes he did. A few minutes later they were outside and knocked on my door to say that
we had been robbed. Someone had stolen the snowblower, the lawnmower, weed wacker,
the edger, the leaf blower and the pressure washer from the shed. We have lived there for nine years and have never had any problems like this before. And someone had to have come on the property to case the place, because the shed is in the back
on the same sidewalk that runs in front of all our windows and front door. So they are not visible unless you come through our patio and past our door. The only way in and out. We have a case number now, so the next step is to go through our insurance. The strange thing is our neighbour has just rented out his basement suite to two different renters in the past two months. We think it could be someone who lived there temporarily. It puts you on edge for sure, and in a monetary pit,
when you have to replace everything. Doesn't it make you want to scream?

I am so sorry to hear about the robbery. I don't get people.

Ugh! That's rotten! So glad that they didn't come into the house though with your family there!
