    Pneumonia weather with a dash of high winds causing a “public safety power outage” for about 800,000 PG&E customers here.

    Power will be out for 3-7 days.

    I was soaked today so when I came home I lit the first fire of the fall. Didn’t take long before I had to open the window but it made me feel better.

    I don't quite understand why they had to cut the power. I understand the terrible wild fires last year but every area experience high winds. You don't hear much about power lines falling. Is it poor maintenance, poor installation....?

    Highs dipped into the 80s this week and the weather folks here in Tucson were talking about getting out jackets and sweaters due to the Fall weather. They may have been kidding, but it didn't look like it. o_O

    Denver/Colorado Springs already in the teens.
    Too short of a window for above ground backflows.

    I am not sure if there are any issues with their lines, but they were held liable by the state of California before for causing wild fires. And they had to enter bankruptcy protection. Their stock lost about 3/4 of it's value over that. I think they turned the power off in fear of liability issues this time around.

    The whole deal last time was probably just a "money grab" attempt by the state of California so they could redistribute the electric company's wealth.
