Half million out of power during the storm

Last Thursday, the "historic" snow of 12 inches fell upon us. Some in Haslet, Texas got 14 inches. The snow weighed down branches, and caused power outages. Over the next few days, as the snow started to slowly melt, over half a million people were without power. My husband works for the power company, and it is being declared the biggest storm and widespread outage ever. I think everyone is back on now, but it was miserable for so many. Trees in our neighborhood had been trimmed about a month ago, so we had power just on our side of the street. It is so nice to see sunny, cloudless skies today.
