Power crews have made great progress getting the lights back on after the second round of heavy, wet snow this week.

The weight of the snow caused trees and power lines to come down.

"We've had crews out since [Wednesday] night," explained Nate Stone with National Grid. "Our outages started coming in around 11:00 or 12:00 last night, but they've been out there all day."
It's important to remember to exercise patience and safety.

"If you see a line that's down on the ground, consider it live. Don't go near it. Give us a call. We'll send somebody out to take a look at it as soon as we can," assured Stone.

The best bet is to go to National Grid's website and click on "Report an Outage."
"We have so many scattered outages right now that we're trying to pinpoint where every single one of them is. So we'll have a better idea if you just put your address in there," explained Stone.
