Halloween and Smart Meters
Halloween is approaching and a good friend and neighbor told me that he had seen Janis Fullilove following around two men dressed in scary costumes. They were knocking on doors and telling residents that they were there to deliver their “SMART METERS”. While it was impossible to tell who these two costumed gentlemen were, one wag told me that he heard them calling each other Jerry and Chris.
Well no one has knocked on my door yet, My neighbor apparently is in one of the chosen groups that are scheduled to get the first of the recently approved smart meters. After the knock on his door, he asked how to opt out of the program and he was given the attached letters and documents. Talk about scary!! He is still looking over the details of the OPT OUT and has not come to a decision yet. The documents point out lots of good things that will happen if he OPTS IN and lot of bad things that can happen if he OPTS OUT.
But be of good heart. You time will come eventually in the OPT IN/OPT OUT game. In the meantime study the choices. And let me know what you think.
