    Weird in my neighborhood too with power outage. There are two streets without power and it is only one side of the street for both. The rest of the neighborhood has power.

    We’ve been out since Monday and OG&E sent an email this evening that they don’t expect to have it back until Friday at the earliest. Absurd.

    There was a lot of damage to some areas. Physical repairs don't always follow "Immediate gratification".

    Thanks for the reminder, wasn’t aware of that.

    Is oge systemwatch accurate?

    When I click on the outage list a and sort high to low it shows OKC with 87,000 outages. I want to say 2 days ago, for okc it was 89,000. Not much of a budge...

    The addition of "Absurd" on the end of the post I replied to indicated exactly that.

    They're down to 79,000 now. Probably pretty close. Once they get the large areas on that are repaired by getting main lines back up everything slows down quite a bit. It spreads the manpower and equipment out a lot when they get to all the smaller areas.

    We still don't have power at 36th & Shartel.

    OG&E email says it will be back on by Friday, which would be close to 2 weeks.

    We finally have some progress. Our block is a single island that's still out, 31 houses according to OG&E, supposed to take until 9 pm on Wed. But 2 linemen from another company came by today, wanted to check my weatherhead, and luckily mine is OK (the other 2-3 aren't so lucky). They said they've never seen a setup like this, and when they saw the pole, they said "Woooow, hope the pole's OK". So for our one block, there's something big that took the whole block out, plus they have to go door-to-door checking on individual house connections, and at least one pole on our block has apparently major work that needs doing. So it's not really absurd when you think of that scenario repeated ad nauseum across their entire service area. If only the idiot next door had listened when I told her multiple times she needed to trim/cut down her trees (we'd still have the original problem, but not these complications).

    I saw a OG&E post this morning that the email was a mass email and the Friday est. is the est. of the last repairs to be done. It said most would be back on by Wed.

    I was wondering if the October ice storm was predicted in the 2020 farmer's almanac?

    I'm in a FB group of people I went to grade school with. One of the ladies in the group posted on the page that the lineman was working on her street. She's pretty upset thinking he was working to get her power back on.

    Whatever those guys get paid, it's not enough.

    Tough, dangerous work often done in the worst possible conditions.

    There are projects around the house that I'll watch a video about and attempt myself but I do not like doing most things electrical for this very reason. Electricity is scary as hell. I know I couldn't do what those guys do.

    Linemen are usually injured when someone has a generator hooked up incorrectly (illegally) and back feeds the line.

    My brother is still without power and OG&E is saying it should be restored by Friday.
