Damn the storms!

I love the rain! I love thunderstorms! Except when it knocks out the power at 4:00 in the morning. Then, while Merrin sleeps, I have to rummage around the house, find the flashlights, find the old analog alarm clock, find my watch, find my glasses, set the clock, set the alarm, and then try to go back to sleep. GRRR!!!!
