WEST BEND, Wis. - Residents in West Bend are finally back online after Thursday's snow storm.

Today's TMJ4's Todd Hicks spoke with a family who's happy to be allowed back home in time for Christmas.

In West Bend, Amanda Modschiedler says she hadn't been home since she left for work on Thursday. She and her husband stayed with family after the storm dropped a foot of snow and their power went out.

Michael Modschiedler was concerned the pipes would freeze.

The couple is now dealing with food that spoiled in their refrigerator.

At the height of the storm, there were about 100-thousand customers without power in southeast Wisconsin.
