Someone tried to break into our house on Friday!!! It was sometime between 7:15 pm and 9:00 pm and we werent home at the time. They didnt get into the house but damaged the steel door. It looks like they pushed or kicked it a couple of times and one more kick would have had them in the house. The door split on the inside about 2 feet long and the steel was creased. We saw fresh car tracks in the driveway too. We live in a rural town too! Not sure why anyone would even attempt to break in, our road is fairly busy and we do have a neighbor on one side of us. I am not sure what stopped them from finishing the job and getting into the house, maybe someone drove by, maybe my neighbors dog barked, or could have had something to do with my 85 lb Rottweiler in the house. So we are replacing the door now and the one we are replacing it with also has a deadbolt. I just dont feel safe without one anymore especially since my husband is an over the road truck driver. Thank goodness for scary looking dogs! I also have a gun or three handy when I am home and I know very well how to use them.
