The emergency thingy just sounded at work. Waiting to hear if our floor gets evacuated. Of course, if it does, then I might be able to convince a co-worker to let me take a portrait, since we'll already be outside anyway.

I think I hear sirens in the distance, which I imagine is standard procedure for whatever alarm went off.

If I die, tell 'em I died like I came into this world: screaming like a baby.

Update: Some guy came out of the stairs and checked something by the elevators, then radioed some guy asking if they had water on 16 (I'm on the 11th floor). I can hear people walking down the stairs, so I imagine they're evacuating a higher floor, likely 16.

Update 1107: We just got announcement that the alarm was due to "an activation on the 7th floor" and that the Boston Fire Department has responded and declared the building safe for re-entry. So I guess that means I'm going to have to work a little harder to get any portraits today.

I was dialled in to my weekly department meeting (working from home). The floor evac siren went off on 7, and they had to adjourn.

Of course, they're on the opposite side of the building from their jackets...
