Do you lock your doors?

All the stuff in the news has been so scary lately. Kidnappings, rapes, triple murders. It seems like the whole world, or Ohio at least has gone crazy.

I don't usually lock my door during the day but now, I am finding the house locked up tight. I don't even open the downstairs windows for fresh air, on the up stairs ones. 

I know I am probably being  paranoid, but I would much rather be safe than sorry.

Do you lock your doors during the day when  you are home? Do you lock your doors at night?

I didn't use to but I sure do now.  My neighborhood was once very safe.  Now we have some nutcase who has us on his list of windows to look into.

I used to work for the Sheriff Department. In a nice neighborhood! Lock your doors. We would have people go door to door and jiggle the handle to see if the door was unlocked. Windows on the first floor, lock at night! Yes it has gone crazy! I keep the screen door locked when I am home too.

My hubby leaves for work at 2pm and he has a habit of locking the door behind him!

Yes, always. I live in a pretty safe town, but we have had a few things happen here. It's not so much paranoia, just habit really.

I lock doors when I leave or for the night...not when Im home though.

When I was in college I lived in a not so great neighborgood. We were always afraid of having our downstairs windows open.

My doors are locked all the time. My windows are open during the day if the crazy Ohio weather permits; at night I'll have them cracked with the lock if I want them open. My husband has me a little paranoid but he's prepared me just in case something does happen.
