Blistery winter weather causes widespread power outages Monday morning. You could see leaning or collapsed poles and downed power lines all across the metro. Ice as thick as about an inch surrounded the lines, then you add in the high wind and these lines came crashing down, sometimes crossing roadways. 

Crews are working as quickly as they can to restore power, but considering how widespread the outages are, it could take some time.
