Blowing Sunshine

Yesterday, AmerenUE (the Saint Louis electric utility) promised that 90% of the 155,000 customers still in the dark would have power restored today. So far, they've managed to get to 25,000 customers—a mere 16%.

Sure, the day's not over yet, but they've got their work cut out if they hope to even approach their benchmark. The other theory is that they're blowing a whole lot of sunshine up our asses, which isn't a half-bad idea since 130,000 of us are going to be in the dark for a 7th straight night in a couple hours time.
