Not the best day to be without power but that's exactly what's happened to 5,000 homes in southwest Boise.


An SUV hit a power pole and that's all it took.  Idaho Power's working on getting everyone back online asap but with temperatures like what we're getting... every minute seems to feel like an eternity.


The power pole accident went down at Fox Ridge Drive and Parker Avenue which is near Five Mile and Columbia roads.  Ada County dispatch got the pros on site quickly and fortunately nobody was hurt.
