The copper you have to watch out for

When I was growing up in this region, my dear old parents hardly ever even locked the front door.

Can you imagine that these afternoons? Of course, not only that but my Mom left the keys in the truck all the time.

I asked him about this fact later on in life and he told me that leaving the keys in the truck was so he wouldn’t go out and lose them. These afternoons, I’m having to lock down the Heating plus A/C equipment actually just to keep it from getting destroyed by copper thieves. I hope the bars on my windows aren’t next. But I guess I wouldn’t be too surprised by that development either. If someone is desperate enough to rip apart an Heating plus A/C cupboard for a few simple handfuls of copper fittings, why not bust a window right? It’s sort of concerning that we’ve gotten to this point. And the police can only do so much to stop this behavior. From what I understand, the folks that are chopping into and destroying indoor Heating plus A/C equipment for copper fittings are desperate due to terrible addiction. While I don’t adore the system of that, it’s still something that our humanity sincerely needs to address a bit more comprehensively. The fact that there are folks that feel very desperate to get pennies on the dollar for black market copper is both distraught and super scary. In the meantime, I’m just not going to be a kneeling duck either. So I have now easily locked down my Heating plus A/C cabinet. That’s right, I bought a carbon reinforced steel cage recently to fit over my Heating plus A/C cupboard outside along my house. And I personally locked it down to the concrete pad the Heating plus A/C equipment rests on. It’s absolutely a shame but it’s the way it is.
