<broken link removed> Not attracting attention to yourself or your home buys you time. It suggests to those looking for food, water and anything else they can find that you have nothing, which encourages them to move on and look for richer pickings. Was I ever naive years ago. When power would be out I would fire up my LED lighting, even external lighting to tease the neighbors. I even had a disco ball running - lol - what an arse!!! No more of that though.
