Why Ohm Hours during the winter?

So why Ohm Hours at all during this time of year? Is this just gamification or are we actually doing something?

I joined OC to help prevent spin-up of peaker plants. I do not care at all about $, but when the grid is teetering, I want to know. I love how OC warns me and then reports on our reduction. It makes perfect sense for 100+F days.

Today the weather was 54F and we had a MEGA OhmHour. Why? Was there a predicted large spike in energy usage in mid-February? I want to know more about the fundamentals behind the OhmHours!
