    For "Climate Change Reasons". We have the possibility of 8 to 10 mile an hour winds!

    Whats changed? That just sounds like fall weather! Some how I smell a rat! What do you want to bet they ask for and get a rate increase to cover the "Lost revenue" from the outages. Because they could not get a rate increase to cover the fires.. they will get it back this way. Anyway, I'll see you guys when I get out of power jail! DR

    Sorry that y'all are being done this way.

    Just a reminder...there is land for sale in other states...and it is probably cheaper than Cali.

    - happened here last few days
    - it's just the shenenegans they play right before they raise the rates
    - ie they cut you off from the power so you 'beg' to have it on 'all the time' even at the cost of a rate-hike
    - inflationary psy-op shenanegans

    We just missed a trip to AZ. [ I was sick]. But we are looking at Northern AZ and Southern ID. We have to get our house marketed. I retired in Aug.

    David the communist on abc reported that the big fire was started by the power co and their rolling blackout. They will have to raise the rates for settlement money to cover the lawsuits that are coming.

    That same justification was used to increase the rates for the water for some of my family that lives there. Thinking back to the “energy shortage” I expect nothing less that the highest level of corruption from PG&E. Hope you all don’t lose your sanity.

    I think it's actually a form of live "prepper" training. Big Brother just wants you to be safe in the event of an actual Kalifornication.........

    For all those folks deciding to leave, CA, just remember to leave CA behind you. There should be a huge class-action suit against that power company.

    3 days?!? What about people that need power to stay alive? Oxygen machines are things like that?

    I'll bet the criminals in that area are looking forward to prospect of so many dark houses and non-functional burglar alarms.

    I think they are just trying to condition you Californians for their upcoming "green new deal" they have planned. 3 days without power will seem like heaven compared to months without power, water or food. At least you will feel better about your nasty carbon footprint being gone.

    So glad I got out when I did. It's been thirteen years and I have no regrets.

    They push wind generated electricity, then shut off the electricity when it's windy.
