Now that’s its September, Snowbirds (as northerners who winter in the south are known hereabouts) are about to leave their summer homes. Some of these homes are long-in-the-family residences; others are small seasonal camps or cabins on lakeshores, or even mobile homes in summer-only trailer parks.
But, let’s face it, all our “homes” are filled with all our “stuff”!

Now I live in a neighborhood, a very nice little set of smaller homes built after World War II, where hardly anyone closes blinds-drapes-whatever at night. You can walk past any property and see what’s playing on TV most nights!
So how vulnerable is your home — and your stuff — when the property looks lived in because the lights are on a timer, but the window blinds are non-existent??
