The Froshstache is like a giant, wooly, warm embrace of safety. And all of us are stuck in it like pieces of sushi rice from his last meal. It's so cozy!

I just installed a NightLock on my front door. I also staged weapons before I go to bed and re secure them when I get up in the AM for work. So far haven’t had any close calls, but I’d like to think I’m semi prepared.

As mentioned earlier, you want deterrence and time through layers.

-Well lit home.

-Doors always closed / locked.

-We never answer door for strangers.

-Nest doorbell to vet strangers who could be legit such as a repair person or an official of some sort. The census canvasser for examples...told her I’d do it online.

-Outside kept tidy: no newspapers, empty trash cans, etc. Never looks like we’re on vacation.

-I have hidden sensors that chime if you walk through perimeter of yard. The receiver is on my nightstand but can be heard thru house. Each monitor has a unique sound / number so I know which side of house was crossed.

-360 degrees of elevated visibility. Several nest outdoor cameras push notifications to my cell phone 24/7. That system has AI to discern between wind and people.

-Dog with bed is strategically located to hear and see visitors...even reacts to the sensor chimes now!

-Monitored home security system and sign.

I have NO guns or ammo due to unfortunate boating accident.
