Some without power choose to chill at home

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Power outages combined with a brutal cold snap have sent lots of people searching for a warm place to stay, away from home.

Grand Rapids West Siders William Cole and Bonnie Davis are not among them.

“At least we got a roof over our head in the house and we’re not in the wind. And we’ve got a fire going. I think it’s fairly comfortable,” Cole said Friday night. 

The couple hunkered down in their Hillcrest Avenue NW home using a roaring fire to keep themselves and their pup warm. They played cards and watched “All in the Family” re-runs on their cellphones for entertainment. 

They say that with their elderly dog, they don’t feel comfortable staying with friends or family.
