Allen: Are you all right?
Monica: Yes, we're fine, but that blizzard really caught us off guard, especially this time of year. Have you seen the news?
Allen: I just watched it. Overnight, the storm felled over 30 trees in and around the town and toppled utility lines. City officials are saying that some residents may not get their electricity restored until the weekend.
艾伦：我刚看过 。一夜之间，暴风雪吹倒了小镇周遭30余棵大树，还推翻了公用线路 。市政府官员发言说有些居民区直到周末才能恢复用电 。
Monica: That's terrible, especially with these unseasonably cold temperatures. I heard the ferocious storm last night, but I didn't expect that homes would actually be in danger of washing away.
莫妮卡：太可怕了，尤其是又遇上异常寒冷的低温天气 。我听说昨晚遭遇凶猛的暴风雪袭击，但没想到我们的家园会有被洪水冲走的危险 。
Allen: I don't know if any will actually be washed away unless we continue to get steady rain and snow, but those downed trees wrecked plenty of homes. It'll take months for us to fully recover from this storm.
艾伦：除非雨雪持续下个不停，否则不清楚是否会有房屋被冲走，但那些倒下的树木毁坏了许多居所 。要从这次风暴中完全恢复还需数月 。
Monica: They're calling it “The Storm of the Century.”
Allen: Well, if we just get one of these storms this century, then that's more than enough!
