If you were without power last night, I know where you live.

If you were without power last night, I know where you live: Somewhere between Marion Street and Dayton Avenue, 38th Avenue and Alameda Avenue.

Of course, that’s a little over 20 square miles covering parts of Denver and Aurora. (Not everybody in that area was affected.)

“For the metro area, it’s a pretty good sized outage,” Xcel media relations representative Michelle Aguayo said.

She wrote this morning that the outage hit 27,730 customers and that Xcel doesn’t yet know what caused the outage. It lasted about an hour and a half.
