Franklin County chips away at what storm left behind

Posted: Updated:
ENOSBURG FALLS, Vt. -

Cody Johnson of Enosburgh spent Monday afternoon chipping away at what the ice storm left behind.

He is not alone, especially here in Franklin county, but Cody is one of the lucky ones. His power is back on at his house. "My 2-year-old has been running around inside crazy. We just got power back on last night at four -- other than that, keep warm and keep busy chopping, break up all the ice," Johnson said.

But head into Montgomery and Berkshire -- it's a different story. "We lost power Friday night for a couple of hours. It came back on late and was off 5:30 in the morning," said Justin Snider of Montgomery.

"We got power back at 5:10 last night but I don't think it will stay on -- it flickers a lot. It's bad. We have got trees still falling now. Yeah, its pretty crazy up here," said
Chad Bartsch of Montgomery.

The Red Cross has set up a shelter at Enosburgh's Middle and High School -- about a dozen people have been in and out. There is no word on when all power will be restored, but officials say it may not be until the end of the week.  The Shelter expects to see a lot more people come through the doors as the power outage continues and the temperatures continue to fall.
