Back to normal ... or at least close to it.
Everyone's power is restored and after nearly two weeks of extremely hot weather, Decatur-area residents are going to be seeing near-normal temperatures this week, the National Weather Service said this morning.
Now, if we could just get some more rain!

Only a portion of a downtown Monroeville building remained standing this morning after a devastating fire broke out Thursday night.
One side of the building, last occupied by a Dollar Dan business over a year ago, was still standing. Firefighters reportedly had the other half of the building knocked down in order to prevent rekindling. The structure is owned by Roger Gerardot, at 107 Summer St., across from the American Legion post.
No monetary estimate of damage was available.
