The Night the Lights went Out:

Driving indoor temperatures below the forty degree mark, residents tried to bundle up and dig out of two feet of snow.  Without generators to power wells, they used bottled water for toilets or filled motel rooms.

The winter storm blanketing the region has left thousands of Dutchess County, NY residents without power as of Wednesday afternoon.   Many were  still without power Sunday evening.  Power officials noted that over 150,000 customers were left without power which is about half  the companies total customer base.

Crews continued to restore power into Monday while county and city crews cleared fallen trees throughout the area.
