At the corner of Corbin and Reed a homeower had already employed a landscaper to cut through a fallen tree which was blocking access to her garage, and truck This was at eight in the morning, and it was an impressive sight. Several other individuals were assisting in hauling away branches.

While power lines were down, and these workers were not in danger of electrocution I still found their efforts impressive, and heroic. To find at such an early hour so many people working to restore power, and telephone service was a welcome sight.
