    Yeah, but, in 2011 there was another similar act of God. The power companies and the governor was advised to winterize the power grid. So maybe that will be the argument since they did not heed the advice.

    The power companies can increase the service fee to offset the cost.

    Yes. But often recommendations are made that cost money that would at LEAST mitigate impact on people.

    Guess what? Making things better costs money. This is the POWER flowing to a WHOLE STATE. To try to skimp on a few bucks to stick it to environmentalists means that when the problems come, YOU have to pay the piper.

    That's why The argument that the companies did not heed the advice, imho, may stick.

    I don't think the courts would rule that not winterizing was a deliberate and irresponsible act, especially in a region with a historically warm climate.

    The customers will pay dearly for those upgrades. The city upgraded the sewer main on my street. My assessment was $2000.
