As if the wet, icy snowfall and treacherous road conditions weren't enough, Reginans woke and commuted to work Tuesday morning to find widespread power outages throughout the city.

Several neighbourhoods were in the dark until 7:45 a.m. CST.

By 8:15 a.m., SaskPower had tweeted out that power was restored to some of the city's subdivisions. The corporation also advised that power wouldn't be restored in the downtown area until 10:30 Tuesday morning.

But by 8:30 Tuesday morning, SaskPower tweeted out that power had been restored to the downtown area.
