Apartment Life #313

This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that have gone on in and around my apartment complex and in my neighborhood in the past 25 years that I've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 25 years here in a weekly blog post.  

I noticed this guy hanging out his bedroom window across the street. He was using a drill so I figured he was installing a camera. 

I was right. lol I'm not the only one around here wanting to get pictures of all the action and shenanigans. 

He had it installed in less than an hour. 

This is a picture from weeks ago when they were redoing the roof but I'm using it so you can see what window across the street it is that has the new camera. It's the right window on the second story. Directly across from me so I'll have to be careful having my curtains open at night. lol Don't want to end up in someone else's story. 

When I was being nosy and taking pictures across the street, when I zoomed into this window I noticed another camera in the right corner. LOL There's probably a lot more cameras pointing on our street than I thought there was. With all the homeless, domestic disturbances, drunk people, and drug addicts acting a fool out here at night, as well as the police, fire Department and ambulance... I'm not surprised to see all the cameras. 

On Wednesday there were two police cars down the street. I saw someone being arrested but I went inside when the police turned and were watching me watch them. They don't seem to care if people are out watching unless they see you taking pictures. 
Tuesday night around 10:30PM I heard about 5 gunshots pretty close by. I waited to see if I saw anyone running or screaming. I didn't see or hear anything and no police showed up so I figured it must not have been that close after all. Nothing around here the next morning either. They could have just been shooting in the air as well. I couldn't pinpoint where the shots came from so saw no reason to call the police. 

The high this week was 81F/27C
The low this week was 41F/5C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
