UNDATED -- Xcel Energy wants you to turn your thermostat down Wednesday morning.

We are experiencing some strain on our natural gas system due to the weather conditions.  We are asking people to reduce the use of natural gas.  We're asking them to turn down their thermostat to 60 degrees or lower.  And, avoid using other natural gas appliances like hot water heaters.  More information will be on our website soon.

Spokesman Matt Lindstrom says they'll update us as the day goes on.
