I was in my living room at 10:00 PM and heard a big ripping noise (they were wired to the house).
I yelled "Hey!" and ran to the door.
I could hear a car peeling away but only caught a glimpse of the car at the corner before it was gone. Bush&Co were lying half in the gutter and half in the street (I believe that they were trying to haul them off with them).
I have had pretty elaborate (though nonpolitical) displays for years now and they've never been touched...
I've posted the "before" pictures before on this blog so I may as well post the "after" pictures:
Where they were.
One of the ripped wires
Where they are now.
I'm not certain if I'll put them back up (it wasn't that easy the first time). Any suggestions?
