Tim was talking to a neighbor the next block over. They are completely renovating an old house on the riverside, hauling out big piles of construction debris to a dumpster set out front. They've been staying on site though, which no one realized. Esp. the people who broke in during the night. They were probably looking to steal tools, but left in a hurry once they realized someone was there.
If you go one block the other way, someone crashed into the wraparound porch on an old house,
In the middle of the block, where we live, it's been quiet enough.
