Another false fire alarm tonight, second one since last Saturday (two days ago). Last time it was cigarette smoke in the 2nd floor stairwell. Tonight someone pulled the alarms on the second and third floors. Then all of us mobile people have to go downstairs and gather in the social room. Disabled on the upper floors stay in their apartments. I'm tired of this. Plus we only have two fire trucks for the whole town and skeleton crews because of recent budget cuts. It takes a good 15 minutes for them to get here, all the while the alarm is deafening,
We had a Valentine's Day party this afternoon in the social room. Cookies, coffee and tea. There was a good turnout. I took an apple down and ate that before the cookies were served. I took blueberry fig newtons so I could have some healthy ones. Two is a serving for 110 calories. I only ate two then broke down and ate a vanilla one with frosting and a few sprinkles. The apple kept me from gorging on the cookies. I had black tea, no sugar.
An other storm blew through again today and we still never lost power but many other areas are out. Our lights have flickered quite a bit. Then there was an earthquake near Mt. St. Helens this morning, 4 point. I didn't feel it tho because I got up at 5, had breakfast and went back to bed at 7:30 and slept a couple hours.
