Utility crews from--not only all over Michigan--but other parts of the country as well are continuing their effort to get power restored to those affected by the ice storm over the weekend.  Still, thousands are in the dark and some could remain so until "after" Christmas.

The crews from areas like Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Georgia and West Virginia, are doing their best to repair power lines damaged by icing but are fighting another round with Mother Nature.  As the snow continues to fall, branches already iced and heavy, are continuing to fall--and with them--more powerlines leaving even more without service!

Some utility companies are targeting total restoration of services as Saturday, but admit most will likely have powre back by tomorrow.
