This is the second time in as many years that my hotel has had to be evacuated due to a fire.
I’m in Satan’s Taint, New Jersey where it is pouring down freezing rain. The evacuation alarm went off at 11:00 PM, and I grabbed my tech and headed down the hotel stairwell that emptied into a cold wet parking lot. I did smell smoke but the firemen searched the building and gave the all clear.
A rainy Saturday was a perfect opportunity to go visit the Herndon Fire Department’s Open House. Cartney met his Aunt, Uncle and cousin Tristan there, where they got hats, stickers, pencils and coloring books. Best of all, they got to explore the vehicles and the firehouse itself. While we were there a real emergency was called in and the big firetruck and rescue squad had to leave quickly with sirens and horns blaring. All of the toddlers visiting clapped their hands at the loud noises.
