The other day, in a catalog or on one of the gadget websites I read, I came across a device that will sound an alarm at you if your garage door stays open for more than a certain amount of time. I was thinking "That's a good idea". See, the garage doors - and we - can be flaky from time to time, and either we don't remember to close the door, or the door stops closing part way and starts opening again (I think perhaps the safety sensors are starting to go).

Well, apparently, one of the two happened yesterday, and my garage door didn't get closed after I went out to buy potatoes. loree went out to go to work this morning, found the door open, and quite a few things NOT in the garage. Like the mitre saw, the drill press, several powertools, the appliance dolly, irgth's weedwacker, and we don't know what else.

Interestingly, it doesn't seem any of the computers were taken. There are quite a few of them out there, but it may be that the ones that are intact don't look that much like computers, and the ones that do aren't intact.

So, awesome.
I called the police non-emergency line, and an officer will be calling me back to take a report.

I'm going to wander back out there and look around, see if I remember anything else that's missing.
