Moral of the story: Adrenalin sucks! Keep your home defense guns as accessible as you can. I am fairly sure I could not have tied my shoes in that state. Never mind work a safe's combo lock and load a magazine.[/QUOTE]
Glad you and your family is safe. Sounds like several good lessons for all of us. One I would like to point out is how adrenalin effects us in a true emergency. This book below describes the psychological response to a true emergency.
The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes - and Why [Paperback]
Amanda Ripley (Author)
The key to surviving a true emergency is drills and practice. Just like hospitals have code blue or code red drills, schools (in Arkansas) have tornado drills homeowners should have fire and intruder drills. Mentally planning it out and physically going through the drill, even at night.
Thanks for sharing so we all benefit and glad it was only a false alarm. Think of it as a drill :-)
