Because I don't pay the bills in my household, the names PG&E and SMUD are pretty much synonymous with each other to me. In fact, I struggle all the time to remember that PG&E is the gas company because it has an E on the end that stands for Electric. SMUD sounds more like a gas company, like it's in the mud where gas lines run. But SMUD is an acronym for Sacramento Municipal Utility District, which tells you jackshit.
PG&E, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, is undergoing a huge project to replace gas lines in Land Park. You can see the photographs, read about my experiences and unusual observations in my personal blog today at this link: About the PG&E Gas Lines in Land Park on Muir Way.
