|Downed power pole in Lake Forest Park|

Here's why you were in the dark last night LFP residents. It's the usual story. Weather, in this case wind, knocks down a tree. The tree falls on the power lines. The weight of the tree pulls down the lines, the lines bring the pole with them and the pole snaps off.
The power goes out, and the tree and/or pole block the road, in this case busy Bothell Way / SR 522.
Even though this was the only power outage in City Light territory, it still was a complex enough job that it took crews all night to repair, replace, and restore power.
Enjoy those lights!
