Monday was a miserable day for a lot of motorists, but times were also tough for people who rely on electricity for heat and light.
The Hemmings live on a farm northeast of the Verdant Valley Community Hall. Their power came back on Tuesday morning after being off for 26 hours.
"It got cold and we were concerned about pipes starting to burst," admitted Lynn Hemming. "Luckily, it wasn't that cold overnight, only minus three or four or something."
"There were all kinds of power outages and different lengths of time, but ours just happened to be that long, and we understand there's still places with power out to the east, between here and Youngstown."
ATCO Electric saw hundreds of customers lose their power after heavy, wet snow downed or shorted out the lines.
"We're happy that it's restored and thankful there were people working on it," stated Hemming. "Some of our friends are ATCO folks and they were out all night."
