Electrical Update for Pine Ridge

This was copied from a AP article about a ongoing snow storm in Wisconsin.

"In western South Dakota, utility crews were still working to restore electrical service knocked out by a blizzard last week. An estimated 1,800 customers of six electric cooperatives have been without power since that storm. "

"The South Dakota National Guard has sent an 11-man team to help open roads for the electrical work crews. Deep snow driven into 7-foot drifts has slowed the repairs, and Ken Wetz, manager of Butte Electric Cooperative, said about 3 inches of ice still covers some downed wires."
