Most of the county got power back about 24 hours after the storm. There are isolated pockets that don’t have it back yet, but most folks won’t even notice that anything happened when they come up.
Nothing like the media is making it out to be. Yesterday the CBC news kept repeating “don’t go to cottage country for peace and quiet this weekend, all you will hear is the sound of chainsaw”. Both Minden and Haliburton are up and running like nothing happened.
