Rewrite "It was a dark and stormy night"

So I did the one minute writer thing again and I think I messed it up. Rewrite this sentence in a way that is more interesting and less cliche: It was a dark and stormy night. This is what I did.
I could not tell if it was day or not. I could tell that it was raining very hard outside. The rain smacking my windows making a PING PING PING noise. There were thunderous claps that made me jump when I first heard them. I didn't see it coming. I couldn't . I was in an accident that left me sightless. So for all I knew the sun had been out before the storm came.

one word. one minute.

so this one is from It gives me a word and gives me a minute to write about it. I think this will be very interesting.

So my word is insect. Kinda bummed because I know my sister Candace (who referred me to this website) also got this word. But I make do and just start jabbering on and here is what I wrote

An insect flies over my head. It is making this buzzing noise. And it is extremely annoying. I am trying to relax and read a book. How can I do that with that buzzing noise? So I swat at it. But I miss. So I chase it and leave my book behind. I am exhausted from chasing that pesky insect , that makes that annoying buzzing sound

one minute writing.

I had one minute to write about my first memory that involves fire.

So here it is. no editing. I didnt have time. LOL

well the one thing i remember about fire is with a candle. The flame would flicker when you blew on it. I remember thinking it was kinda kool. I remember being under a table and getting yelled at for "playing with fire." It was only a candle
