Hi John,
The power went out during the storm Thursday evening. Thousands were also out in other areas of Presque Isle's area in the Lower Peninsula. They didn't get to us until yesterday, Christmas eve. The East line was restored quite soon, and then it was found that the West line was bad in a lot of places. Sand Bay got power back at around 6 pm. The crew of three had to stay over and work on Christmas day, today. What a bummer for them.

Many used back-up generators. I haven't heard of any place getting smashed by a tree yet, although many trees did fall.

Merry Christmas to you and to all on this site.

Hi Mike. Thanks for the info. It's good to know you are "holding down the fort".

Happy new year!
