Our neighborhood power was shut down since 8:08 PM Sat. We went to bed and got up when there was light. We will be out of power until perhaps next Monday evening if mother nature will cooperate. The wind howling suggests the utility company is doing the right things. This morning we went to a McDonald restaurant never saw that many customers who wanted a hot meal.  One older senior stated he was left alone at home. The sight of seen lights in town is a thankful feeling.  

 

We hope everyone is safe. Needless to say the people who took the blame are out there risk their lives are doing what human can do correcting mother nature behavior which may be a result of this Global Warming.  We have fires when power grid is turned on. Utility took much blame to operate. When power grid is off we have 100 of fires and they turn off power to be cautious. Residents complain.

 

This is what the overworked power company is saying:  

 

As PG&E shut off power to 940,000 customers, or an estimated 2.5 million people across Northern California, the utility company briefed the public on the light at the end of the tunnel: when the power might be restored to all those left in the dark.

Just as the power was shut off in phases, it would also be restored in stages, depending on location and weather forecast. The affected area is broken up into seven regions, according to PG&E incident commander Mark Quinlan:

— Sierra foothills: all clear planned for 6 a.m. Monday

— North Bay Area: all clear planned for 8 a.m. Monday

— Southern Sierra foothills: all clear planned for midnight Monday

— South Bay and East Bay Area: all clear planned for 8 a.m. Monday

— Northern California coast up to Humboldt County: all clear planned for 4 p.m. Sun.

Those poor small businesses don't stand a chance! Every restaurant without power is losing so much money. :( I hope the communities rally behind them when power is restored!

 Pacific Gas & Electric, warned it could conduct its third power cut in less than a week; nearly 4 million people could be in the dark.

Sam, hope you have power today, and this situation is just ridiculous, and the power company or the State of CA should have done something about this already.  Not turn off power!

We got 8 fires going on.  The smoke here is relatively thick trigging my allergy. Went to a home with a gas generator just opened up. It is 115 volt so it can not run furnace or stove. Bbq with gas outside.
