And with the first real cold night of the year comes...

Fire alarms. Lots and lots of fire alarms.

It's pretty common to get a lot of burglar alarm calls when it's stormy and windy outside, but last night we got tons of calls where people said "There's a fire alarm going off in my building..." After about the 5th one, I couldn't figure out what that was all about, so when I transfered it to the fire department, I listened for a little bit. People were turning on their furnaces for the first time since February or March! Makes perfect sense! But it sure did keep the fire department hopping!
