The last I heard, 2 Million people will be without power and for several days. Does this happen in other states? Are we just whining? Honestly, I don\’t know. I feel fortunate because my city has its own power grid away from PGE. (Must be good for my property value) But I do have compassion, and many people I know in smaller areas that are on the PGE grid, are suffering. Yeah okay, maybe they need to be PREPARED. We are planning to buy a generator by the end of the year to \”get ready.\” And Yes, we didn\’t plan to take on such an expense as we retire. Oh well. We\’ll figure it out.
Many in the outlining areas, are elderly or have disabilities where they need power. Then again, why haven\’t they had alternate power if their lives are at risk due to power outages? I\’m not one, that would wait around – waiting for someone to help me. I was not raised to be helpless. By God, I would do everything in my power to get whatever I needed to help my loved one who needed their medical devices powered up. You know, it\’s a bummer, but that\’s part of life. What\’s the saying, \”SHIT HAPPENS?\”
I don\’t understand why big cities are not without power. Or maybe, I do understand…
So this weekend is supposed to be a BIG fire watch weekend with high winds and no power for 2 million people. The fire down in Sonoma County (Kincade) was actually started by a PGE transformer that was still \”ON\” when it sparked. At least this time, PGE admitted it.
I don\’t condone, some of the country people literally taking potshots at PGE linemen. They are just regular people, working for this POS company. There have so far been 2 incidents within the last couple of days – Violence doesn\’t get you anywhere. It just makes you look bad.
The towns around us will be black. Makes for a boring weekend when you really can\’t go anywhere, due to everything being shut down.
Yep, it sure sucks to be PG&E now…
