While you're busy wondering what the hell Centerpoint is doing in terms of getting your service back up, look on the bright side. You could be an Entergy customer.
Customers of Entergy -- mostly north and east of the city -- are having almost no luck getting power back on.
In fact, Entergy is moving in the wrong direction. This morning 97.8 percent of their 393,000 customers were without power. This afternoon that climbed to 98.3 percent.

Entergy hopes to reach the 100-percent mark soon, a spokesman didn't say.
So bring down the Centerpoint hate all you want -- at least they're not adding outages.
