   LITCHFIELD, Maine (AP) — Some people in the United States and Canada who've been without electricity since Saturday may not get their lights back on for another day.
   That could change as more snow creeps into Maine and parts of Michigan and cold temperatures keep ice from melting off power lines and tree branches, posing new risks for outages.
   Utilities are advising customers that restoration efforts are being slowed by fallen trees.
   Tens of thousands of homes were still without power on Wednesday in Michigan, down from more than 500,000 at the storm's peak. Maine had about 60,000 without power, down from more than 100,000.
   Canadian utility officials warned that some customers could be without power until Saturday.
   The storm that started Saturday and continued Monday is being blamed for at least 27 deaths.
