Havenít seen a single report of one on my neighborhood watch group. I think people being home definitely has an effect plus fairly empty sidewalks (and Iím in Chicago with heavy pedestrian traffic) helps. Letís see what happens as people start ordering more as they get bored and stuff like game systems have a good resale value.
