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:

Similar with the “brownout”. A couple lights throughout the house worked, but were very dim. And the clocks to the stove and microwave blinked during the outage. I called Dakota Electric while driving to work and was told it was a large area. Which is interesting… my sister and brother-in-law live about 1.5 miles from us and had power. And Composer lost power and MNNavy didn’t.
