The fire alarm went off in the music building about fifteen minutes ago. The pain of the alarm was excruciating. It was the sort of piercing sound that would get everyone out of the buildings incredibly fast. Unfortunately I also believe it could damage our hearing. And then we got outside and the screeching was out there as well!

Ah well.

The fire department arrived and switched the sound off. But not until after all of us had aching ears. (And a poor guide dog looked scared to death.)

Back to work ….

  1. Tonight (this week being the week before finals and therefore the library being open 24/7) someone decided to pull the fire alarm 15 minutes before midnight. We all got to pack up our laptops books, etc. and carry it out into the freezing cold and wait around for 20 minutes. fun stuff. I feel ya.
