Please publish kudos for Baltimore Gas and Electric officials. As a resident of Howard County still without power as of July 5 at 4:25 p.m., I was so thrilled to see my first BGE vehicle and representative in my neighborhood since the outage last Friday night. Imagine the comfort I took when I learned that the individual was a natural gas meter reader.
Even though there is a downed, live wire in the neighborhood protected by two strands of yellow caution tape, BGE is out collecting natural gas billing data on customers that have natural gas but not electricity. Seeing BGE's commitment to the most important priority makes up for the lack of proper prior planning with regards to the overhead lines. Thank goodness for buried utilities.
