BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. – A bit of good news in all the recent power outages: some parts of our area have power once again.
One couple we spoke with near Smith Mountain Lake had the lights turned back on around 2 p.m. Wednesday, after about 100 hours.
“We’re lucky we have a lake so we can get water to use, and we have gas logs. That was about it, and we had battery-operated lights and flashlights,” said Vincent Ostermeier, a Dixie Acres resident.
He said they also used coolers to keep food fresh, had their batteries charging and got the ice ready for another potential outage.
