Our thanks, ns \vr.ini :is the we a thev \vc" v ; br on having, and just ns sincere, go to thosi custom- err, who hisv'e shown their patierfce "nhd xifniersU^ul - ing during the past few tlays when local di.sJrihu- tion troubles have, in sonic cases, kepi Redily from performing his Utsk.-s in his usual efficient mcii- her. The same things that have held up delivery of your new car or washing machine or electric range or telephone oi" new house have held up delivery of transformers, wire and other vital material!"—hut in spite of those shortages, we're forging ahead lo n't-k the problem in the shortest possible lime. We appreciate the understand ir:^ yoti have shown, jurt ns we know you appreciate the effort we're making lo correct the situation. The cxircmcly hoi wc.ither throughout this section' during the few clays has caused nn enormous increase in the use of electricity — more than 50% above our wartime peak. As your thermometer went up, up went the amount of juice used hy your refrigerators, fans, air coridilion- ing units — multiplied hy the hundreds in use hy your neighbors. As n result it took much more electricity to do the job. All this, plus the continued shortage of materials necessary to m.iimam and expand our service has added many, many problems to the work of getting electricity delivered to you — problems which we arc working night and day 10 solve. For instance, a huge transformer with capacity enough to serve two cities the size of Blythcvillc, ordered Nov. 16, 1945—nearly 2 years ago— has not arrived. Other materials, too numerous to list, are still on "back order." As a result, we simply have not been able to do all the things we'd planned to do by this lime. Even though there is enough power available, the problem is in getting all the materials necessary to deliver it to you. As a temporary measure we're operating nil of our emergency equipment, switching transformers in order to get a better load distribution and. in general, doing everything possible lo take care of every single customer in the best manner possible until additional relief is in sight.
