    Crews in New Hampshire have made progress restoring power after the first major snowstorm of the season, but about thousands of people remain in the dark.

    Many New Hampshire residents have been without power since Wednesday. At the peak of New Hampshire's fourth largest power outage on record, 200,000 people were impacted. 

    Public Service of New Hampshire reported that the majority of their outages were in the southern part of the state. They expect power to be fully restored by Monday.

    Some New Hampshire residents are making the most out of the power outage. The Bull family, for example, took a break from the indoors to go sledding. A generator is powering their home.

    "I think they are almost done fixing it finally," said John Bull. "When we left to go sledding this morning, we saw the tree removal trucks."

    The humming from generators can be heard on Indian Rock Road. Peter Lacey's has been going since Thanksgiving morning. "It's not too bad, the heat's on, we haven't lost any food," said Lacey. "Other than that, it's mostly the lights."
