With the temps dropping below zero tonite, I wonder if they will still proceed with this plan. I have electric heat so I know this will suck for me if it happens to be longer than the 20 minutes planned.

i agree with you mr b......with the temps as low as 10 or even -4 you would think they would reschedule later in the week when temps will be in 40's.......SMH.....

Nice job posting this. There are places in that zone that need to know about service interruptions so they can have their generators up and running.

Of course they do. Maybe you should learn to read time stamps. Article was updated after comments were made. I will wait patiently for your apology.

LOL, my above comment was in reply to "FRANK" (who has since deleted his comments) <<Did you READ the article? The service interruptions have been postponed which was the purpose of the article.>> FRANK did not take the time to read the time stamp of when our above comments were made and the timestamp of the article which was updated with the cancelation info after are comments. FRANK, I'm still waiting for your apology, instead of deleting your ignorant comments.

Mr. B please accept my sincere apologies :)
