Last night was awful.
I went to bed at 11 pm and slept soundly until I was woken by abrupt silence at around 2 am. We lost power and the sudden silence startled me. I used my cell phone to find the flashlight and grabbed the kids to put in our room, I knew they would freak out in the pitch dark but before I could grab Sophia she already started to freak.
It's scary not being able to tell the difference when your eyes are opened and closed. The wind throwing things against our windows didn't help to make the situation any less scary either. I lit a candle next to my bed so the kids would see some light and then tried to go back to sleep.
About half and hour later the power came back on so I blew out the candle...then a few minutes later we lost power again...then it came back on...then went back off and this continued until around 7 am. Every time the power went off or on I woke up so needless to say, I'm a little grumpy today.
And to top things off now it's freezing cold and windy outside, just great!
