I won't even be in town. I get on a plane to Japan on Sunday morning.
So you're the one causing all this climate change
Here in Florida after a hurricane the people who have their power out for only three days are referred to as "the lucky ones". A little perspective can be helpful; living without electricity isn't as nice as with it, but you'll be amazed the extent to which life goes on. A month from now everyone will have moved on and forgotten all about it.
LOL on the first part. So, power went out Saturday at ~8:20 pm. Unfortunately, Comcrap didn't stay up long this time. It went out before the 30 minute mark. (My cable modem and access point are on UPSes.) During the last PSPS, Comcrap stayed up for over 45 minutes.
Yeah, I recall a co-worker (originally from Florida) talking about hurricanes and the power outages.
Unfortunately, I remember see a headline (e.g. https://www.latimes.com/california/stor ... r-shutoffs
) about this being a thing for 10 years.
Ugh! I grew up in CA but was out of the state for about 9 years. We never had this sort of thing except for Enron rolling blackout scam when I was residing in another state. They certainly didn't shut off power for these "public safety" or wildfire risk.
The weirdest part about the grid is that my entire neighborhood was out. I went to get something to eat, and surprisingly every single traffic light on an expressway to my destination, including one not far from home was working. I went a few miles and at that point, all the houses to the left and right had power. Where I went to eat, there was no outage at all (a busy commercial area).
I'm waiting at the airport now w/a 2 hour delayed flight. It sounds like the all clear for my area is Monday at 8 am but it sounds like it's for the weather event. They still need to inspect/finish inspections of the power lines before they turn power back on. So, it could be that day or another day. And, if there's damage, that needs to be fixed.
