As SaskPower crews work to restore power across the province, SaskEnergy is asking for our help as furnaces fire up again.  

This is the information posted on their webpage.

We are currently assessing the effects of the ongoing power outage on the natural gas system. Our natural gas distribution and transmissions facilities are equipped with backup power for situations like this and are being manually monitored by SaskEnergy Technicians.

Once the power has been restored, furnaces in affected areas will all start up at once, using a large volume of natural gas in a short period of time. This can create challenges for the system. SaskEnergy asks that anyone who is affected by the power outage turn their thermostats down to 16-17 ⁰C to help lower the immediate effect on the natural gas system. Once your power has been restored for two hours, thermostats can again be returned to normal temperatures.

Power was finally restored in Moose Jaw shortly before 3pm, but remains out in a number of small communities.

It's also interesting to note that as of noon today Sask Power had received about 20,000 calls since 9:00 this morning.  That is equal to the entire call volume for the month of November.
