    If you think Beijing is bad, try Shanghai some time...whoa.

    Re: Possible power outage for next two days

    Thanks everyone for your kind wishes. It will be great to be back home.

    I really feel for all my friends in California. Love or hate PG&E they are in a no win situation. The PUC and public won’t let them build infrastructure and while they are really focused on conservation the existing grid infrastructure cannot handle peak demand so critical infrastructure is breaking.

    Be safe on the west coast. Unfortunate challenges with drought, fires and now power to prevent more fires.

    Re: Possible power outage for next two days

    Well, the power went out where I live in Five Canyons in Castro Valley last night, right before midnight. Its still off, 15 hours later and we have virtually no idea when it will go back on. The irony here is the power was shut off for predicted high winds (putting PG&E's crumbling infrastructure at potential risk for a downed power line) and...there is virtually no wind. Wind maps show a wind presently of up to...2 mph.

    After the devastating Tubbs and Atlas fires that ravaged Sonoma and Napa Counties in 2017 and the Camp Fire that devastated Paradise (and burned my sister's home to the ground) in November 2018, PG&E has "hardened" only 100 miles of power lines and towers in 10 months. They had a target of a whopping 150 miles for 2019. And they have...24,000 miles of lines and towers across California. At this rate it will take them....~160-200 years to complete this work.

    Meanwhile, PG&E plans to pay top excecutives $11,000,000 in...bonuses this year.

    Mine never went off, but around me it did. I think it is coming back on now. At least that is what I am reading on Nextdoor.

    I suspect this is part of a PG&E strategy to get legislation that exempts them from any damages due to electrical caused fires. Inconvenience enough people, and it might work.

    Hang in there guys. Not a good situation.

    in addition to the impact to homes, I wonder about the impact to the wine country. It is harvest time and power is critical for the vineyards to crush and process the fruit.

    Just ask CA Governor Gavin Newsome about that. He’s not at all happy that the power to his wineries has been turned off.
