We drove out to the farm this morning to check on things, and knew something was wrong as soon as we saw the gate to the driveway open. Someone cut the chain and lock with boltcutters, and kicked open the tool shed and the barn. Luckily, they didn’t seem to get into the house, and we didn’t actually see anything missing (there is so much junk there right now – nothing much of value to take!). It was strange that they likely drove in (why else break the gate – you can slip around it on the sides) but didn’t take anything that could’ve had SOME value – like the Crane sink, or the barbecue, or the riding lawnmower. We are grateful for that! We spent some time walking around to make sure everything was ok, and picked some spring flowers to take home before locking everything up again. We’ll be driving out more often to check on things – looking forward to having more happening there soon, so that it isn’t so empty!
