So this morning at 6:34 AM our fire alarm went off.

Yes, it has been but two short weeks since we've called the fire department.

My husband and I both bolted out of bed and raced to the smoke detector. He turned it off.

No smoke.

It immediately shrieked again.

Still no smoke. He turned it off again.

Carbon monoxide? I asked. No, says he. Besides the CO detector isn't shrieking. No smell of natural gas. And this wasn't the battery's-dying-beep. This was full on alarm shriek. We still have no idea why it shrieked.

At 6:34 AM.

Have I mentioned that my kids are out of town?

What kind of sick joke is this?

And no, I couldn't go back to sleep.

Well, on the bright side...no readjusting your sleep patterns upon their return!

Weird alarm...when you figure out what's going on let us know!
