Reader thankful for speedy service

To the Editor:

On Tuesday evening when the storm hit, our power went out at about 6:30 p.m. Duke Energy was here within 30-45 minutes.

I can't tell you how glad I am that we have dedicated people like the ones working last night!

It took six hours to get our power back up. The temperature in our house went down to 52 degrees, but the people outside had to deal with much colder temps and high winds, then snow, sleet and ice.

They did not stop or let up until we were back up and running. I would like to let those workers know just how much I appreciate them and their dedication to making sure everyone had power to all involved.

Thank you.
