Woman Gets Electricity Back After 3 Years

Just one week ago Sandy Geisler's life was much different. She's been living without electricity in her home for more than three years. In the last 24 hours, that changed.


Just one week ago Sandy Geisler's life was much different. She's been living without electricity in her home for more than three years. In the last 24 hours, that changed. Sandy fell on hard financial times after the passing of her husband four years ago, and adapted to life without some of the simple things most of us take for granted, like lights, electric heat, the microwave and television. Today she showed me how her life has changed.

For more on Sandy's backstory you can see my last visit to her home: Reaching Out For Help After 3 Years Without Electricity If you're in a similar situation or know someone that needs help, we've put everything you need to get started in a previous story. You can find that here: Need help with your utility bill? It explains what to do if you're about to lose your service or have already been shut off, including who to contact.
