I noticed something odd today: there are footprints in the snow around my house. All the way around my house. There's no good reason for someone to cut through our yard, as the neighbors on both sides have completely fenced yards. From our yard, you can't go anywhere but back to the street. The thing that is nagging at me is here:
This is where whoever this was apparently stopped, turned, and looked in our living room window. YIKES! Do I need to be concerned? The tracks are too close to the house for someone to be, say, looking at the roof or something. Not that anyone needs to be looking at our roof. I just tried to think of any reason why someone would be LOOKING at our house like that. Then I looked out the patio door and:
Same deal. Two sets of footprints with someone stopping at the patio door and apparently LOOKING IN. Who does that? You want to talk to us, you come to the door. The front door. And you RING THE DAMN DOORBELL. You don't circle the house and peek in windows. Ew, I have chills.
I thought maybe one of the utility companies was doing something, but we haven't reported any issues and none of the neighbors have tracks in their snow. There's a utility pole on the lot line but no one has been near it. Oy vey. I'm going to wait until Walker comes home and see what he thinks. Maybe there's a logical explanation. If not, I'll be renting a Rottweiler until this creeped out feeling goes away.
