    A snake slithered its way into some equipment at a power substation, knocking out electricity to thousands in Arlington late Saturday night.

    Dominion Virginia said the reptile disrupted the substation on Four Mile Run shortly after 11 p.m. Nearly 10,000 customers lost power for hours.

    Officials said the power has been fully restored.
