OK, these pictures are not very good, but they show some of the 1,000's (yes 1,000's) of power lines that are down in southwestern North Dakota. They say that it will be weeks, or maybe months before they all get fixed. Some of them look like kindling. Even some of the big metal towers collapsed in last weeks' storm. I'm very thankful that we have electricty where I live, although there are people out in the country near me that do not.
