Smoke Alarm batteries! AAARGH!
Sat, 08-16-2008 - 1:52am

Our house is equipped with a whole slew of hard-wired smoke alarms (county code requires it) but they all have back-up batteries.

And tonight, for the second time in a month, they all went all... beeep beeep beeep, long pause, beeep beeep beeep, long pause, beeep beep beep... one starts and the rest follow. And DH sleeps through them! AAARGH!

Then its a search for teh one with the dead/dying battery. The one tonight was in ur garage! AAACK!

Time to do a major tour of our alarms and replace the batteries in them ALL.

Of course, one has to wonder what will happen if they go off for real as DH will certainly sleep through it!
