UI NE-U didnt they do a great job of tree removel.....NO but they want the increase!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH> I propose a 30% reduction for the next 5 years to teach them a lesson! Where else other than a weatherperson can you be wrong so often and still have a job and get a raise!!!

F------ ENOUGH!!!!

Poor Sean. Always complaining and probably didn't even lose power, right? Exactly what are they supposed to do in 60 + winds. It's a rhetorical question, hence no question mark. Considering the strength and duration of the storm, it's surprising that there aren't/weren't more outages. I made the effort to be sure my generator was in working order, yesterday. Turns out, it needed a new spark plug. That's what you do *prior* to a storm; make necessary preparations. Besides, it's not up to the utilities if they get increases, it has to go before a commission.
