Weekly Photo Challenge: ILLUMINATION

Light Up the Night!

That’s what happened when the fire alarm went off at two in the morning at our hotel in Portland, Maine. Flashing red lights, great yellow spotlights, night to day as the movie term has it:

Portland Fire

Fire Engine in Portland

Spotlight on Fire

    Had that happen twice. Once in Boston, once in South Carolina. Not fun. Glad you came away with just an adventure.

      You jog my memory, Gemma. First time it happened, years ago, was in Charleston. Do you think the deeper meaning is we should stay away from South Carolina?
      You’re right, it’s not fun!

    Very creative in using the firetruck. 🙂

  4. I remember this story – yikes!

    Yikes! I hope everyone/everything was/is okay…?

      Well, it wasn’t a “prank” false alarm (which it was years ago in Charleston also in the middle of the night).
      But it wasn’t a fire, either (Hurrah!) —
      Seemed to be some sort of electrical system malfunction, although we never actually found out exactly what.
      But all were thankful everything was okay!

        Yikes; scary. But also reassuring. Funny how one single situation can have so many different (and contradictory) layers…
