    Accepted, I still have the lamp. Most of it is in a garbage bag but there is still quite a bit scattered around the house.

    Man that is scary, glad to hear that you and your family are ok.

    What do you have on the outside of the house vinyl siding or wood? Hope it won't to hard to repair.

    Thanks. The outside is a stucco type material so no problem fixing it. The glass is a large picture window type however.

    that is insane. makes you think carrying, even when at home, is a good idea. if your daughter is old enough, perhaps not a bad idea to keep a shotgun close at hand too?

    Did MPD give you any details?

    --about the bullets (handgun rounds I assume)?

    --Possibly gang related?

    --Robbery gone bad?

    Glad everyone is ok. Look on the bright side, you get to spend some time in the hardware store. :supergrin:

    No, there were/are no more details available. The responding officers did recover the two rounds (one was pretty much destroyed and the other mushroomed but the back part intact). They pretty much indicated that unless they caught the shooters on another incident that they probably would not be able to find out who did it. I also heard from another MPD source that they probably had the wrong address and were trying to intimidate someone. I think if it had been a robbery attempt they would not have knocked on the storm door.

    BTW had the window repaired yesterday, $280.00. Go talk to the Realtor® Friday :)

    Sounds like they did intimidate someone, you.. if you are really thinking of moving..
    unfortunatly the local gangs may want to take over your block and see you as a 'good guy'

    I wouldn't say "intimidate", more like prod me into making a decision that I was thinking about for some time now.

    I call it a logical decision. There are infinite places to live in this world, why not move on? Keep safe.
