Saskpower has come up with the best excuse known to man ... frost.  


Ken Audette (Eagle Newsie):  "Why has there been so many power outages lately?"


Saskpower:  "Frost build up."


Ken Audette:  "How do you explain Shaunavon not having power for 6 hours?"


Saskpower:  "Lines had frost on them."


.... Brilliant!  I thought it was such a good idea that I started implementing that excuse in my everyday life.
