WASHINGTON (AP) - Independence Day is being celebrated - or endured - in many parts of the U.S. that have been without power for days.
Hundreds of thousands of customers were still without power after powerful storms struck the Midwest and across the Mid-Atlantic region on Friday.
For some, it was a chance to remember what it was like in 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was signed. Visitors to George Washington's Mount Vernon estate found it pleasant, but they had a breezy porch and ice cream to enjoy.
For many more people, holiday plans were hastily canceled or rearranged for the stifling weather.
Utilities have slowly been restoring service following the storm. At least 26 people have died in the storm or its aftermath.
