SHELTON - Power has been restored to a Shelton family's home after heavy snow collapsed the garage and left them without power for weeks.

The collapse cut the electricity to the Willette family's home two weeks ago, preventing them from staying in their home.

The family has been living in a hotel and using an extension cord from their neighbor?s garage to keep the furnace running in their home.

United Illuminating crews restored power to the home tonight.

The Willette family says they are happy to have power back, but wonder why it took so long.
