Real thunder! I do love a good storm if I'm not out in it!
That's what I'm hearing right now and after losing the electricity for more than 2 days because of a storm, the booms and moments of darkness aren't very appealing
I hear/feel your anxiety, LOL
When I have been without power and/or all utilities for extended periods of time, I've been okay with it, because most of the time we have it. I am thankful I live in a country where it is available, except for a few glitches, and taken as an everyday necessity (when actually it really isn't a necessity for living). I've actually enjoyed the total silence immensely during those times, rather than getting frustrated over what's going to go bad in fridge, no hot water, or no running water, and other inconveniences it causes. Kind of like that saying, "Be still, and know that I am God" But that's just me!
