    Hey Ohio guys!

    So, I got robbed yesterday. I got a call from my landlord at my warehouse yesterday, she told me my lock had been cut and I need to get over there to see if anything was missing. When I got there last night, opened my garage door, and it was like slow motion, it was empty! They cleaned me out. Trailer, 56" exmark, 48" yazoo, 2 weedwackers, blower, billygoat leaf blower, billygoat leaf vac, chainsaw, hedge trimmers, tools. Everything!
    The cops told me they just broke up a state wide theft ring, and there was a ton of landscaping and construction equipment, so hopefully my stuff is there. Everything was insured, but with depreciation on everything, I'm surely not going to get what its worth. These suckers did this in broad daylight yetserday, and hit 3 other warehouses in my facility.

    Wow. Funny thing is, lately I have been contemplating selling everything, getting out of the business. But within the last few days I inked a couple of deals with 3 apt complexes for the 2010 season, and was rejuvenated for the spring. Now what?
