Slide 3 shows our seasonal net loss of $4.6 million, which is more than $4 million improved from the third quarter of last year. Growth in margin and increased contributions from SouthStar and Cardinal and lower interest expense more than offset an increase in O&M expense.On Slide 4, we've highlighted our gross customer additions for both the quarter and the year. As you can see, third quarter customer gains of 2,670 customers were 19% higher than the third quarter of last year. And for the year-to-date, we've added 8,728 customers, which is 21% improved from the same period in 2011.
