ATLANTA -- Some local heroes are back home after a grueling two-and-a-half weeks in the northeast.
350 men and women who work for Georgia Power are back home after helping the victims of Superstorm Sandy get power back.
The crews began their work in Maryland and then moved to the New Jersey-New York line. They worked 16-hour days, everyday.
They found their work was not in vain.
"We did have many people who brought the crews donuts and coffee," said Steve Pigford with Georgia Power. "I approached one crew where the woman had just delivered three pizzas to 'em. So they truly were grateful for what we were doing for 'em."
