Okay correct me if I am wrong, gas company employees knew of the anticipated shortage 24 hours before it happened and had time to prepare. Was there a thought in PNM's busy schedule to notify those families who are not employed by PNM if this is at all true? I want to know where my gas is or better yet when they anticipate making it to my place.....oh never mind I talked to the guys from Zia natural gas who were just standing around collecting hours, they informed me that there still was not enough gas pressure to supply the pipes, they are doing the best they can, and meanwhile the rest of the company is enjoying a nice warm meal at Casa De Suenos so I decided to turn it on myself and it has been working just fine.

It's blantantly obvious that you are another sockpuppet of "crime". At least be smart enough to change your IP address so you don't get caught doing it.

How's that crow taste?

where is "crime?"

Maybe it just means more than one person in town gets REALLY tired of you - and, of course, you claim anyone who does is a puppet. Interesting, LOTS of puppets who call you on your crap!

I don't blame those of you who turned your
gas back on- they were taking WAY too long to
getting around the neighborhoods to get the gas back on- and several who did wait (and wait and wait) for them to come turn it back on- now have water leaks as their pipes burst. This area was
the first to lose gas service- and some didn't get
it back on until late Sat. Unless you were without
gas- you have no idea how cold it was inside. We (and several people we know) also turned our gas back on ourselves.

How many could have died from exposure? Have ALL homes,especially those of the elderly & disabled been checked out yet? Check on your neighbors & friends, I did. Frostbite symtoms, you might be suprised. Plumbing dammage, you might also be suprised. This was total BS and totally avoidable.

We live on the far southern edge of town, and our gas was turned off. The folks I know south of town limits are not gas co. customers, but rather on propane.
