Mystery Solved

When Pooteewheet got up at about 12:50 a.m., our power was out. We looked out the window, and it was the same, as near as we could tell, at every house up and down the block, and at the usually tree-lit houses we can see from our "Minnesota Room" across the back yard. When I got to work, I mentioned it out loud, and Brian, who pedaled the Bike Classic with me, pointed me at this piece of Darwinianism (WCCO).

Intruder Burned at Power Substation in Eagan
Police in Eagan are investigating an incident at a Dakota Electric substation in which a 33 year-old man was severely burned, early this morning. Officers were called to the substation in the 1700 block of Deerwood Drive around 12:30 am on a report of a man "on fire". He was transported to Regions Hospital with severe burns to the torso. At least one other person was taken in for questioning. Police are investigating the man's motive for entering the area -- including the possibility of attempted copper theft. The incident resulted in a power outage affecting thousands of homes, but electricity has since been restored.
