UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  X-cel Energy now expects one of three natural gas pipelines shut down by a weekend explosion to be back at full capacity by this afternoon. But the utility is still asking its customers in northwest Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota to conserve as much as they can. X-cel receives much of its natural gas from the three knocked-out pipelines -- one of which blew up in Manitoba Canada during the weekend.

Utility spokeswoman Mary Sandok said it's clear that customers responded when its appeal first went out on Saturday. That's despite another bout of cold-and-windy weather that reached Wisconsin last night. X-cel's natural gas customers are still being to turn down their thermostats, and avoid using gas-powered appliances if they can.
