Anyone else in the Rosemount/Lakeville/Apple Valley area lose power around 4am? I heard a loud bang and a few seconds later the power went out. Not the end of world, but a bit concerning when it’s roughy -13° outside. Our thermostat is set at 72° and the temp it the house got down to 66° right before the power came back on around 6am.

Yes, we had the same thing. My wife woke me up at 5:30 (after I stayed up past midnight watching the podcast). We actually had a brownout. Incandescent bulbs worked, but not others. Nor the furnace. Not the basement I floor heating. We were at 63. I was getting ready to go buy gas for my generator when the power came back. From Dakota Electric twitter:

UPDATE: Power has been restored. The cause of the outage was the power supplier transmission system failure. Thank you for your patience!

I’m in North Lakeville, a block from 160th/CR46
