PG&E Safety Alert: Due to weather forecast PG&E may turn off the power on 10/09/2019. Prepare a plan. More info…
After the catastrophic fires in Northern California the last couple of years, the regional electric company — Pacific Gas & Electric — is contemplating shutting down power for thousands of customers, yours truly included. This is to prevent a fallen line from starting a fire.
- Generator, check (but probably won’t use it)
- Battery-powered lights, check (and, yes, I’ll use them)
- Typewriter, check (manual, not electric)
- Good book, check (several, reading The Sport of the Gods presently)
I’m looking forward to possibly losing power. Nothing is more retro than a good (even planned) power outage.
