Where is your "Love"?
It takes time to replace poles and string wire. They have to check each and every connection before they can restore power. To dry out or replace connection boxes and transformers. They have to check lines, point to point, before they can energize them. They have to check out each and every drop to the houses and businesses to make sure there is not a problem inside before restoring power there. All this takes time.
Being an Lineman electrician is heavily regulated. Everything has to be done by the book.
If they don't take enough care and re-energize a down line somewhere and kill some one or start a fire, there be hell to pay. Or if they cross some wires and short out a primary somewhere, the sparks may be pretty, but the damage is not. To say nothing about getting repair crews killed, if they rush too much.
