Pepco servicemen work to restore power.
By Elliott Francis
Pepco officials say approximately 26,000 residents remain without power in Montgomery County.
We spent time with one local resident whose house has been without electricity since the start of the storm.
Mary Staley says the power outage has been disappointing, but she seems to take it all in stride particularly as she sees the Pepco serviceman working on the lines at the end of her street.
"It's so frustrating I feel as if I could just, just say, pleeease, fix my transformer. But, no," says Staley.
Go inside Mary's house, and you realize what no electricity feels like, it's very cold.
Mary shows us how cold.
"So here's our indoor thermometer. It's 46.4," she says.
Mary says she's been staying with neighbors and didn't buy much food last week so spoilage isn't an issue.
Right now, her biggest concerns are how long it might take to turn the power back on.
"They probably wont get to it till Friday," she says.
...And the forecast for more snow this week.
