Did they all buy their security systems from a 99 cent store, or did they just not turn them on?
Get a dog :)

Has anyone seen the utter devastation that even a small leak in a high-pressure gas line can cause?
We're not talking about low-pressure home pipes here, which may be just a few PSI above atmospheric pressure, or even gas well pressures, which are relatively low volume and thus the pressure falls off sharply when a leak occurs.
No, we're talking about many hundreds of PSI combined with almost unlimited volume potential, which combines to take mere SECONDS to dump out enough natural gas in massive volumes to destroy whole NEIGHBORHOODS before automatic shutoff valves sense the leak.
I'm sorry that the trees were planted in the wrong place, but they were planted in places that may result in deaths, and the risk over time is not that low.
