Thanks to the Lake Forest Park police, we now know that the reason for Tuesday's power outage was a downed tree.

The tree hit the wires and took down the pole, which cut power to 175 households in the immediate area. Seattle City Light had a replacement pole and wires back up within a couple of hours - record time.

And there's the pole.

Here's the area that was affected.
