"We've been without power since 2 o'clock, yesterday," said Craig Galvrieth, who lives off Friendly Avenue.

He was trying to restore his driveway to how it looked a few days ago, before Michael. However, one thing he can't restore is his power.

"Normally this area right here, the longest it's been off is probably three hours," said Galvrieth.

Now it's been more than 24 hours.


For him, it's not life or death, but he made sure to mention he was watching one of his favorite Western's when the power went out.

"It's almost like crack. I never been into drugs, but I'm telling you, I've got to have that TV! So I've been shaking ever since," Galvrieth joked.

But Galvrieth like thousands of others around the Triad are literally, and figuratively in the dark.

"It's never happened before, I'm just wondering how long it will be," wondered Galvrieth.

Duke Energy says customers can go to their website to get updates on power outages.
