Grinch snips Christmas lights on railing

Sally tells us someone snipped the Christmas lights on her porch railing at 6th Avenue NW and NW 82nd Street sometime Sunday morning.

Our front porch railing is lined with lights and someone snipped the wires with scissors in over a dozen places. We’ve been living in Greenwood over 5 years now and love it here but are getting tired of the malicious activity that seems to be common. We’ve also had our car stolen three times in front of our house. Thinking about installing a camera……


Did anyone else have lights snipped?

And speaking of Grinch-like behavior, two of the new lighted monkeys from our neighborhood’s lighting display have been stolen in the last few weeks. The most recent theft was of one of the monkeys hanging from the trees in front of In the Red Wine Bar on Phinney Avenue at 65th. If anyone  knows who might have taken them, please email us and we’ll pass along the info to the neighborhood lighting organizers.
