To say it's more challenging than untangling Christmas lights would be a gross understatement.
"It gets more difficult as it gets colder. Guys have to get in and get warm. And they work 16 hours a day straight," said Darryl Evans, LG&E.
Honestly, it's probably closer to completing a jig-saw puzzle that never seems to ends.
More than 16,000 power lines were down since the winter storm began. A figure that is expected to rise along with the number of homes without power, which at one time topped 600,000 state wide. Hundreds have turned to shelters for protection in these bitterly cold conditions. Many are close to capacity.
"It's a nice warm place, food and eat and don't have to be in a cold house," said Sharon Taylor, without power.
Others have relied on each other.
"We actually are very lucky we have a generator. So just trying to stay warm and have people over that aren't as fortunate," said Kara Sweeny, without power.
One crew has been out since about six this morning trying to restore power, not only to homes but to a nursing home behind it, where 150 residents were without power.
"The windstorm in September, there was more mobility, like my car is stuck in, I can't even go to work," said Sweeny.
Last September's warm weather also provided utility crews with greater access.
"Unfortunately that's not going to be the case this time," said Evans.
In fact, power restoration could take longer with more wintry weather expected.
"With the wind coming and the tree limbs already heavy with ice, a little bit more snow, a little more wind, we're probably going to get some more down," said Evans.
The city is hoping that power will be restored to enough to have school on Monday. Dare to Care has prepared 500 packaged meals for those that need food. If you are in need, you can call 311 for more information.
