When we built this house, by state law you have to have fire detectors. Which is good. But in this house there are so many that buying batteries for them takes a chunk out of my food budget. Just kidding and I never have the right kind of batteries. Last night at 10:00 P.M. the power went out and all of the smoke alarms started going off. I was sound asleep. Now when the smoke alarms go off, they all go off every single one, and they do this echo thing, it is quite disturbing. To be woke up from a sound sleep, and the power being out makes it really scary.
Except, it was a night of torture. I would just be falling back to sleep, and the alarms would go off again. It has something to do with the power being out because they are wired on a different circuit. Ron tried to explain it to me but I didn't understand it. It was still over ninety so the house heated up. I looked out and as far as I could see the power was out every where. This morning, PG&E still didn't know why it went out in the first place.
I realized, I really am a fan of air conditioning. I was also very happy, that the coffee maker worked this morning when I woke up. I had a doctor's appointment and I didn't get up on the right side of the bed. I was glad that I didn't have to go outside and fire up the burner on the BBQ to boil water.
I hope your weekend is very nice, so sorry this is rather scatterbrained. Lack of sleep makes me like this, yeah, that is what I will blame it on.
Have a wonderful weekend,
