Even though one of our houses was in the affected area, we were not affected by the power outage.

It was a bit annoying to be prepared, but ultimately, it was a false alarm for us.

Look at the bright side, you didn't lose power! If you did not prepare and you lost power it would have been a extreme bummer frown

I read that after the winds die down the the power company will need to check every inch of their power lines and that will take 5 days.

I am thinking the governor will not let this happen in the future.

Oh to be a Generac salesman.

Yep … Gens have become affordable - we drop power once in a while due to storms - and just to be able to keep your food from going bad means way more than putting up with some discomfort if you don't have a big Kw unit to keep the HVAC up. If it's super hot … I keep a small window unit in the storage building and can cool the living room where we have the most seating. (normally fans are good enough)

$10 billion settlement for the fires?
Who do you thinks going to pay for that?
No outages in Los Angeles?
It's for the homeless.

Blame it on Cali's bright idea of deregulation. Utilities could no longer afford to keep equipment in the condition that they were previously. Thanks to them that is now the way it is in all the U.S. That's why are electric infrastructure is in the condition that it is.

The blackouts are almost all in the wooded areas, not the urban areas.
By me, the Los Gatos and Saratoga hills are without power.
San Jose East hills has some outage.

These are generally high rent areas.
PGE is messing with the wrong people.
The handicapped and elderly will suffer.

Earlier I offered my surgeon (carpal tunnel) to shower at my house.
He laughed, but is clearly not amused at PGE's neglisense.

California is catching up to some SE Asia countries where the power is off and on.

At work (usually in the suburb or urban), or super charger top off. Tesla is the easy part. Wife has a coworker who had to find ways to refrigerate her son's medication....

I enjoy the theories about Agenda 21 in having the peopleall move to the cities for control of them or forcing the people to get solar etc. Any way either the taxpayers will pay for the cost of the fires or the utilities users will pay for the cost LOL
