Did what they could

There was not a cure-all for the power outages. Those of you that think you can just cross your arms, blink and power will be restored drive are sadly mistaken. Do you realize what all it entales to restore power when you have live wires, wires pulled away from boxes, trees sitting on top of wires - it takes time and safety measures to ensure that all is done correctly/safely. These companies did the best they could and I mean all the companies involved - lineman, dispatchers, fire dept, police dept, national guard, tree trimmers etc. I applaud all the hard work!!
