Last updated on Saturday, August 10, 2013

(POSEY CO.) - There are all kinds of things that can cause a power outage.

Thursday morning, about 4,000 customers in the Wadesville and New Harmony areas were powerless for a while thanks to...a snake.

A big snake.

Vectren indicated the 42-inch reptile got into the transmission line system and shut things down.

Crews investigated and within about 20 minutes, power was restored.
