Power outage for KYMN – UPDATE

November 16, 2018

5:45am or so!  We are back up and partially running!! At least the music’s going!  The morning show will go on!  Wahoo….

Good morning, as Xcel Energy and Master Electric work on upgrading the transformer outside the Archer House to place the transformer above flood level, we are, once again, without power.  The plan was to have power restored by 5am.  In speaking with Master Electric, Xcel just arrived at 4:30am so it will be (hopefully) by 6am…  Please bear with us!  We will then have to fire up the computers….   Happy Friday!!!
