We spent some time with Dave Beran and his Appalachian power crew. He was born and raised in Floyd County and he says where we were today is among the most rural places in Floyd.
The biggest challenge for him and his crew is climbing up trees to remove the limbs. Navigating the terrain to even get to those trees is also a huge challenge.
"It's just so hard to get around in this. The walking up here, it's treacherous and dangerous compared to other storms like hurricanes and thunderstorms," said Beran.
Some of the work those crews did today was preventative. The heavy, wet snow can make trees lean a little too close to some of the power lines, so Beran's crew cut some of those trees down now to avoid future headaches.
For Brenda Lucas and her family, they've decided to entertain themselves by playing board and card games while they're playing the waiting game.
She grew up in Floyd County, so Lucas is no stranger to losing power in the most rural parts of Floyd County.
In her backyard, Beran's Appalachian Power crews were hard at work. The dozen or so men are climbing trees and cutting them down. All this hard work just to get the lights back on for five homes.
Beran says the most rural areas, like where Lucas lives, are typically the hardest not only to get to, but to clean up as well.
