Re: El Paso Water Restriction Extended Until Further Notice

In the spectrum of emergency severity, this week's Arctic Blast was about 2.60 on 10 point scale. What if this had been a 7 level emergency?? If El Paso Elec and EPWU can not handle a "2.6 emergency" imagine what would have happened if it was worse? In emergency environment, responsible utilities need to be SUBSTANTIALLY more robust, & PART OF THE SOLUTION, instead of adding to problem!! Someone wrote they knew about the Arctic blast a week before. No way!-Neither has in-house meteorology dept!
