Power crews battle icy roads, fallen trees

On Colonel Glenn Road, the trees and power lines were no match for the heavy snow and ice!

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- On Colonel Glenn Road, the trees and power lines were no match for the heavy snow and ice!

It knocked them down, and that shut off power to the Hardwicks.

"It's knocked down our telephone wires, too. We've got no telephone and we've got no electricity. They keep putting the slush in our yard," Vickie Hardwick said.

Entergy workers say they have over 4,000 linemen from neighboring states to help restore power. The problem, though, is crews can't get to work right away because of the huge, fallen trees and the icy roads.

"It's a lot of blankets. What else are you going to do when you don't have money and don't have any place else to go?  You have to stay in the house," Hardwick said.

Neighbors on Romine Road in Little Rock welcomed utility workers from Missouri.  Some even went outside to watch them.

"Teenagers, phones are our lives. We don't have our phones then we don't have anything at all," Charles Carroll said.
