APPLETON-- The power is back on for most people in the Fox Valley. WE Energies worked around the clock to restore power for more than 40,000 people in the Fox Valley who lost power following the ice storm.
Meanwhile, Appleton city workers are busy sawing and hauling debris from streets and sidewalks, working to open streets and clear hundreds of fallen branches.
Several homes had close calls.
"I heard a little of a cracking and then I heard a big boom and it just my concern was for my daughter because her room is up there and all I could see was a branch coming through her room there, I came and looked out, it's just tremendous,” said Jodi Mendez of Appleton.
It may have left a mess, but no one was injured during this rare spring ice storm.
Public works estimates it could take several months to clean up all the debris.
