Getting back into the swing of things in the new year, time to post some new puzzles! An easy one to start with...

This morning I was completely convinced that I was in an emergency situation when, in fact, nothing even remotely out of the ordinary was going on. Why?

Hello, Becca Ann,

Did you think there was a particular kind of emergency? Or just an emergency in general (if there is such a thing)?

If a particular kind:
fire?
flood?
tornado?
hurricane?
tsunami?
act of terrorism?
other act of war?
other crime?
other natural disaster?
other human-caused emergency?

Did you think you were in an emergency situation because of something you heard? (if so: an alarm? spoken words?) something you read? something you saw?

Were you at home when this happened?

Did you think the alarm was a smoke detector? fire truck? fire alarm?

Was the alarm actually what you thought it was (hope that makes sense to you...)?

Were you awakwned by the sound of the alarm?
