The Ghantous family lost power on Sunday at their home in Swartz Creek due to ice storms that have left about 40,000 people in Genesee County without power. Lacking power at their home, the family opened their Christmas presents Wednesday morning at the hotel. "We had to put a sign in the window to let Santa know to come here," Jill Ghantous said.
