Some Central Oregon residents are waking up this morning wondering when the power will come back on. Carly Hibbs, 16, of Prineville said their family of four fared pretty well despite being without electricity for almost 24-hours: “It wasn’t too bad. We had the fire going, it got pretty boring because we normally watch TV or do something involving electricity, but we sat by the fire and played cards last night until it was time to go to bed.” Hibbs said a propane fireplace was working without power. Today they are getting up earlier than normal to go to school for a shower. Hibbs says her barn and even her neighbors have power, but their home near the fairgrounds in Prineville is still without electricity. She says her plans today depend a lot on electricity.
