"It's been really tough," said Scott Walker, who is using his fireplace for heat and to cook.

"Build a fire in the fireplace and snuggle down," said Frank White, who lives just outside Watonga and still doesn't have power.

The Blaine County Sheriff Office says drivers that get stuck on the roads will be put on a waiting list to get towed out.

Fortunately, major roads in and out of Watonga have been cleared.
