Two weeks ago I speculated that Columbia Gas will not be done fixing the gas explosions until Thanksgiving.

On Friday, they agreed with me.

This is going to become a humanitarian crisis VERY VERY quickly.

They’re already talking about giving hot plates and space heaters to people to get them through it. wcvb.com/article/hot-pl…
They’re also saying they’re going to reimburse the costs of switching to a different source, which is expensive.

The document makes it VERY clear they customers effected by the gas explosions will be reimbursed for reasonable costs. columbiagas.com/docs/libraries…
I have a gigantic problem with us. The keyword in the document is that they will REIMBURSE people, not pay for it up front. Andover’s median household income is 145k, North Andover is 115k so coming up with 5k or so upfront to fix this...doable.
The median income for a household and Lawrence is… $36,000

how are people in Lawrence expected to come up with what will probably be around 15% of yearly income.

This is going to be a goddamned disaster.
