Most people without power now are true outages. Downed lines, etc.
Plenty of people without water still. Even here.

We're back to fairly normal.

The water line that crosses the creek was shattered into PVC splinters. I replaced all 40' of pipe there, and since I knew the master bath line was fubar'ed, I valved off the line to the master bath. That got water to the outside of the house and chicken coop. When I turned the house on, two copper pipes were split, I couldn't get the copper fixed with my simple propane torch, so I called my neighbor, who borrows my tractor regularly, and since he's in the HVAC world, he brazed them together within minutes.

That gives us kitchen and kids bathroom, what we survived with for 10 years. Now all I have to do is find Schedule 40 1/2" pvc to run to the master bath, and we'll be 100%!
