[REDACTED] I went to Home Depot and bought four more eighty pound bags of concrete. I think I've mentioned before that, as commodities go, dry concrete is one of the least monetarily dense. Several weeks ago somebody at Lowes had told me that they have a real problem with people stealing sacks of concrete, which doesn't make any sense at all. If you're going to go through the risk and bother of stealing something, an eighty pound object worth $3.75 would seem like the last thing you'd be eyeing. Of course, at some of these big box stores there are often stacks of low-value commodities outside the store during business hours, and perhaps concrete in this form is just tempting enough for some.
