Very windy morning here...

It's been very windy all night over here. The screen doors on my neighbor's porches have been slapping all night. It really sounds like it's my front door being opened/closed. I *know* is the wind, but still... every time it happens I *have* to wake up, make a children headcount and check my doors/windows. I just can't go back to bed if I don't check.

Don't you hate it when that happens? Some silly sound on the yard, your dog barking at shadows? Can you just ignore it or do you have to check it out as well?

Haha my dog barks every time a leaf blows. He is a black lab, he comes out thinking he is big and bad and barks like crazy haha. But he will wake me up if there is a home intruder or someone messing around so I am cool with it

My pup is my "wake up and grab your gun" alert system haha

So after the third time or so why didn't you grab a big three or four inch screw and your cordless power driver and go and fix that darn door shut for your neighbour?

Well I guess you could just shoot the door off the hinges if you're short on time like Dade County Metro does.
Go buy a bungee cord and 2 screws.
