Matt Blumhoefer, left, and Rori Stafford, right, work on a car part by flashlight and sunlight Monday, June 12, at Blake's Auto Repair in Atwater. Blake's was one of the businesses in Atwater that lost power early Sunday because of the severe weather. Blake Schroeder, owner, said they were still open but they were only working on projects they could do without power. The garage doors were both open at the shop so Blumhoefer and Stafford could get some work done without light.
