Remember my concern a short time ago about copper pipes being stolen off homes around here?
I painted all of the exposed pipes that I have running the length of my house. I thought I had covered them all.
I forgot about the ones that run from the bathroom upstairs up to the third floor roof. The thieves didn't.
Evidently somebody entered from my neighbor to the north's roof onto my roof. There is no other way to get up there without coming onto my property. They undid the ties that keep the pipes from rattling around and blowing in the wind. Then they tried to force the pipes away from the building. Because of the way they bend and turn and are attached to the wall at a lower junction, they were unable to get them off.
I think I am going to the get the concrete guy to come over and cover all of my pipes with concrete. I can't think of anything else to try to stop this nonsense.
Just another day living in paradise where there is no crime.
