Utility crews are working to restore power to about 200,000 homes and businesses in the Northeast on Monday after last week's brutal snowstorm.
Residents of New Hampshire, New York and Maine were the hardest hit.
"They're trying to do the best they can with the power," said 28-year old New York resident Keith Crum. "You got to take into account there are a lot of lines down."
At the height of the storm more than one million people were without power.
The winter blast left more than 2 feet of snow in New York and whipped the New Hampshire coast with wind gusts topping more than 90 miles-per-hour.
Meanwhile, New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch has activated 50 National Guardsmen who are going door to door in Allentown, N.H. checking on residents without power.
"This continues to be a difficult situation for many New Hampshire families and I continue to urge people to put their safety first," Lynch said.
