(1/27/14) Natural gas customers in northwest Wisconsin are getting the okay to dial-up their thermostats and start using their gas appliances again.

  That's because X-cel Energy is getting fuel again from a supplier near Winnipeg where three natural gas pipelines went out of service due to an explosion on Saturday.  X-cel vice president Kent Larson said customers were quote, "amazing" as they kept their homes to 60-degrees for almost two days of extremely cold weather.  Larson said people's efforts helped X-cel maintain its system so that nobody experienced gas outages.  The utility serves much of Minnesota and part of North Dakota, as well as about the northwest quarter of Wisconsin.
