MUNFORD, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Branches and trees iced over Sunday night, causing them to snap and fall onto power lines.
Thousands of people in Tipton County spent the night without power, doing whatever they could to stay warm.
"I can take it," said Munford resident Jewel Miles. "All you gotta do is put on some more clothes."
Jewel Miles and Jimmy Stingfellow depended on a warm fire to keep them toasty until their power is restored.
"Long years ago, when I was little, we had a bunch of these," said Stingfellow.
Power in parts of Tipton County was out for most of Sunday night and into Monday morning.
Along Beaver Road in Munford, tree limbs snapped and hung on the power lines.
Southwest Tennessee Electric says the fallen tree limbs is what caused thousands to lose power.
"We ain't had power since about 8 last night," said Bruce Fish. "I covered up the rooms, we got some blankets. We got 20-something blankets covering us up."
The pine trees next to Fish's house are coated with ice and because of the weight, branches snapped. One fell and broke the window on his SUV.
"You can't do nothing," he said. "No hot water, no stove to cook the kids anything to eat, nothing."
Southwest Tennessee Electric called in addition crews from Jackson and Brownsville to help restore power in the area.
Most of the power has been restored, but residents are still waiting for one more thing.
"Sunshine, some warm weather," said Martha Willis of Munford.
The electric company is using social media to keep its customers informed about the power situation. To find out more about the outages in your area and when power will be restored, click here: https://www.facebook.com/stemconline
