So last night I logged out earlier than I might've otherwise, because there was a thunderstorm brewing... Which turned out to be a wise decision, as the power completely cut out a few minutes later, leaving me in an otherwise completely empty house (as there's nobody else here for the rest of the week), with no power.
While thunder and lightning and incredibly driving rain continued outside until, uh... About 2:00 this afternoon.
As a result of this, I've decided I like rain better when there isn't electricity lighting up my room from outside. :(
