We really didn't get hit that hard. However, there were only about 20 - 30 customers on our circuit, and the power companies stated from the get-go that they were going to restore power to the most people in the quickest time. Ergo, circuits with very few reported outages were passed over for circuits that had more reported outages.
All that was wrong on our circuit was that the line that serves the houses behind me came down (which I'm on), and popped the circuit breaker on the pole on the street. It took about an hour or two to fix.
I should have purchased several pounds of dry ice and dropped it into my deep-freezer.
The golf course where I work has been closed for a couple weeks now. They're hoping to open 6 out of 18 holes by the end of this week. I've heard that every private course in town is closed.
