Last night, just as I was falling asleep, a loud BANG rang out. We went automatically into the emergency routine and cleared the house. Turned out to just be some kids setting off fireworks, but the event did show us some things we need to work on.
1. I need to practice getting into my emergency vest in the dark. Somehow I managed to get it on sideways in my hurry.
2. We need a better plan for who does what in clearing the house.
3. I need to get some molle pouches for my vest. I didn't have anywhere to put my spare mag or phone.
4. The spare set of electronic ears I've been keeping by my bed aren't functional. Not sure if it's a battery thing or the fact that they're really cheap ears. Gotta look into it.
So that's the to-do list for the next few days.
