FIRE!

No just incredible loudness.

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year. We might have hit 90, but it did not include midwest level humidity.

Work, work, work, work.

In the last mid-afternoon meeting of the day when … the power went out. Ok. But that meant the internet also went out and I was unceremoniously booted from the meeting. And, after almost a minute all of the smoke alarms on the main floor went off.

It was so loud, Carl, who was outside, thought the noise was coming from several houses. We pulled the batteries out of the offending detectors, but they continued to chirp. A bit quieter, but still annoying. I have not figured out why they went off. It was not the batteries, we tried putting in new ones to no effect.

We finally decided to get out of the house and into the heat. And the power came back.

We walked anyway, logging over 3 miles. Probably the hottest time of the day, but it did cool down as the sun went down.

Today was about 10 degrees cooler, and no power outage. Yeah for small victories.

From a walk over the weekend.

    Power outages are no fun, especially with the chirping. That reminds me that I need to replace my smoke detector batteries this year. Ugh.
