Homes across Dumfries and Galloway that have been without power since Friday, due to the snow storms, are expected to be reconnected today.
Engineers have been working around the clock to reach remote parts of the region to reconnect power lines that have been damaged by the snow.
At the peak of the problems, around 10,000 homes were left in darkness.
The main concern now is for farmers who have lost livestock, with many of them being buried under the snow.
Hundreds of pregnant sheep are still to be found.
