Cleaning up after the storm is easier for most residents with power back on. With only the sunlight to guide them, families worked to put their lives back together. "Just glad to be alive, just pick up and go on, it`s all we can do," explained Jaime Case-Wisenor, who lives on Highway 365 south of Wrightsville. Crews worked through the day Tuesday to restore their energy, after a night in the dark. "We went and got candles, a lantern, we have a generator, just kept it going, so we could have a little light," said Wisenor. "But they`ve been working 16 to 17 hour days since then," said Entergy construction supervisor Bobby Broadway. Many of the crew members, after spending weeks restoring power to residents in hurricane-ravaged Florida, are no fixing the lines back in their home state. "A lot like this, debris everywhere, houses scattered," said Larry Berry, comparing the hurricanes and tornadoes. Those natural disasters can add up to plenty of work for Entergy crews. "When you work extended days for an extended amount of time, then it does seem to catch up with you, but we watch our employees. Safety is our #1 priority," said Broadway. But they all say it`s worth the effort to put the Case family back in the light. Entergy says not every strucutre that lost power on Monday has it back on now. That`s because some of the homes with more severe damage can no longer receive it. For example, in the stretch of Hwy. 365 between Wrightsville and Woodson, out of about 20 homes, Entergy could only restore power to about eight of them.
