Do you hate storms when you're home alone?

I'm home alone, my husband is out of town on business. I have the kids home with me but of course they are in bed. Just heard on the news we are meant to have a wind storm tonight with the potential to knock out power, 50+mph wind gusts potentially by 5am. I have no working flashlights, but plan on setting the alarm on my cell phone so the kids are still up in time for school, and plan on taking a stash of candles and a lighter to the bedroom with me when I actually go to bed lol. I just HATE storms when I'm home alone!

  • I can't stand them when i'm home alone either. I live close to family so I always just go to their house!
