Hmmmm.....Should I be Yelling "Perimeter Breach!"?

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.


  1. Yes, very strange. But explainable I'm sure!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you come back often.
    I took some time and read through your blog and found that you and I are going through a similiar experience. I was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma just this past June. Fortunately I didn't have to have chemo or radiation, but Interferon which I will continue with for a total of 48 weeks.
    Love your attitude and the humor you inject in your blog!
    Keep up the good work and have a fabulous day!
    Hugs, Debbie

  2. Did you find out who/what caused this? Hope you don't have a peeper. Did not help that the book I read last night had a home invasion. Of course you expect stuff like that in murder mystery novels.

  3. Nope, we don't know. Walker found the beginning of the trail in our driveway. The scary went through snowdrifts that are three feet deep, went past our bedroom & Diva's bedroom, then all the way around the house. There's a spot outside the kitchen windows where he turned again toward the house and apparently looked in. We've been keeping the curtains pulled. Last night when I got home from work in the middle of the night, I saw someone in our side yard and my adrenaline started going. Turned out to be the newspaper delivery guy cutting through the yard. He doesn't go around the back side of the house, though, so I know it wasn't him making the tracks. I don't think he'd look in the windows, either. Gotta go find me that big scary dog.....
