We already had a preventative shutdown last month. (SCE) After 24 hours I did drag up the generator and get it running. Then the power came back on.

We are under notice today, but, so far, only have the lightest breeze. I dared to put a load in the washer.

How many of the affected people will go to bed early tonight because there is no TV to watch?
Will there be a mini baby boom in about 9 months?

It's terrible when the power is shut off. We have to watch television by candle light.

Our power is still on (Petaluma). My zone isn't indicated for power shutdown according to the map. Doesn't mean a PG&E equipment failure won't bring us down as they try and restore power to other zones. I'm more worried about tree failures later tonight.

And use a flashlight to read the settings on the microwave.

This is real for a lot of people (child care, stop lights out, businesses shut down, etc.)
No need to make light of it.

Our power is still on, but got notification, about an hour ago, that PG&E is now planning to shut-off power at 8 pm, but they said it would be shut-off at 12 pm, which it wasn't, and then again at 4 pm, so we shall see. Back-up generators are in place, just is case.

Power's out in Moraga, but there was still a fire there this morning that nearly took my sister's house out. Burned the backyard, but thankfully spared the house.

Nice the house was saved. Did your sister have to evacuate?
