I am cranky, tired, and extremely blessed today.
I went to bed at 5am this morning only to wake up at 8:30a to get ready for work.....
At 2am, I got off the phone with my friend in Cali. I just found out she is 5 months pregnant. I turn off the lights and curl up with my 2 doxies on the bed.
30 minutes later, all of the fire alarms/smoke detectors start going off. Every 5 to 10 minutes, the alarms go off and then come back on.
At 3:15a, my sis calls the fire dept, to come check out the house and alarms.
At 3:25a-ish, the AVFD comes to our house, with lights flashing but no siren. The fire fighters come in to the house check every room, check the attic, then walk outside to check the electrical box (for the neighborhood) in my garden and my own meter box on the side of the house.
They come back inside the house with this smoking piece of black char. They said it was one of the transformers from my meter box. The transformer controls the wattage for the outlets and lights in my sis room (the one under renovations). It was sparking and setting off the alarms in my house. The AVFD said, by the grace of God we are lucky, because our house should have caught fire. We appearntly have angels watching over us...
Now, I have to go buy a new transformer for my sis's room. I think I'll wait until we get back from the family reunion and when I can have my electrical engineer cousin come over to install the thing.
