People in Whitehorse, Dawson, Faro and Mayo may notice that we are running some of our diesel generators today. Strong winds caused some icing problems for us at our Whitehorse dam and we have had to shut down some of our hydro units. Divers are being brought in tomorrow to use steam to melt some of the ice, but until then we will be burning a fair amount of diesel.
