Hot!


It is March 7, 2006, and I have turned off the heat and turned on the air conditioning. Take that, Oklahoma Natural Gas! It’s time to pay Oklahoma Gas and Electric the bigger bills. (Yes, you out-of-staters will wonder why Oklahoma Gas and Electric doesn’t provide gas to customers when they have gas in their company name, but I can’t answer that other than to say this is Oklahoma.) At any rate, spring is officially here. It was damn warm in the house and the northeast part of the state had the first thunderstorms of the season. There was a wall cloud with rotation just over the state line in Kansas from a lesser storm that moved across Oklahoma.

I guess our chances of a real snow are pretty much completely gone now.

A few months of watching out for tornados, then it’s back to the sticky heat of summer.

    As the resident OG&E employee, I can answer that! Branding! Way, way back in the day, before either of us was a twinkle in an eye, before our parents were twinkles, OGE did in fact provide retail gas service, but we bailed on that. Problem was, the name was what everybody knew, so it stuck. Crazy, but that’s what us humans is like.

      • You did. But, while some people can be idiots and write, you’re not one of them.
        I’m not sure if that was a compliment, a back-handed compliment, or an insult, but I like how it sounds. I’ll leave the translation up to you. 😉

    • Ah, the riddle is solved. Thanks! I’d laugh at the huge amounts of money OGE is losing to ONG, except that it’s just a pain in my butt to have to pay both.
