Resident Sandra Bolinger says it's been difficult. "Figuring out how to cook something, like if you need to cook something or make coffee, just simple things that we take for granted everyday, it's really hard."
"I'm very excited I've got television! First time I've had television since the storm. So it just came on today. I'm very glad to have television," says another resident Taysie Phillips.
Phillips is lucky to have a generator but it's costing her about $50 a day in gas and can only power her kitchen.
She says, "I have my little collection of lights and candles and I've had to learn to hammer and saw."
If you take a drive in the area, you'll notice trees are still down and roads are blocked with fallen wires and house after house there are no lights on.
Thurmont resident Steve Hess says, "We stopped somebody (power crew) along the road. They weren't on one of our roads, they were on an adjacent road, and they told us if you were lucky a week. But count on more like two (to get electricity)."
Potomac Edison says they're working as quickly as possible and hope to have power back on for this area by Saturday.
"Oh, It's just a nightmare," says Phillips, "but the silver lining is the community coming together over this. I'm so thankful for my neighbors and my friends here."
UPDATE: We recently just heard from Taysie Phillips and Steve Hess and their power came back on Thursday night.
