Pacific Gas & Electric plans to shut off power to Napa County starting Wednesday morning … shut-off could last “five days or longer,”

PG&E is monitoring 30 of California’s 58 counties52% [ for a potential power shut-off due to a "severe wind event" forecast for Wednesday and Thursday...

"shut-off could last "five days or longer,"

Hm.... Wednesday... That's October 9. That would be the two-year anniversary of the Tubbs / Nunns+++++ / Atlas fires. hm... funny, that. Many people died the early morning hours of that date and many, many more lost their homes, businesses, family, friends, and a little bit of emotional security - gone forever. Yet the niggling little details -- like being unable to rebuild, or wrestling with insurance companies, or just managing the clean up and assessment of the damage is ongoing; practically a side industry.

If they had turned off the power that night, with the forecast [then, the actuality] of 56mph winds [on the flats], this would not be a discussion. But since there is absolutely no corruption in the PPP [Public Private Partnership] model that has become the backbone of Kleptofornia’s CircleD unchallenged reign, why would any outfit leave themselves open to speculation that it had anything less than perfect confidence in its outdated, poorly maintained equipment? The $billions of “checking” and “making sure” jaw-droppingly redundant “work”, checking and re-checking on any and all lines going on since? Like a cat on a linoleum floor. …whom some are suing. …which I am certain is completely unrelated.

Buuuuuut, that’s not important, now. Move along. Just a few burnt twigs to see, here

oh, one more thing?
The median home value in Napa County is $667,000

Becasue of the power shut-offs, Oakland police has made the entire next week mandatary for all officers — hours to be worked on graveyard shift. Only.

[Methinks they won't shut off Oakland twice.]

[This] afternoon, the utility announced will shut off power to 800,000 customers in Northern and Central California starting

Average, what??? 3-4 people per “customer?” ‘S a lotta people.

They’ve done a good job using the hair-on-fire-media [HOFM] to gin up a lotta panic. Line to get into local “Country Corners” gas station was half a mile long. In both directions. [Jimmah? Jimmah Cahter, to the White Courtesy Telephone Please.]

Oh and the “wind event” is *predicted* to last 5am-3pm tomorrow. Buttttt. It will take the geniuses at PeoplesGuff&Excesses five [5] days to get the powah back on. Cuz they hafta check the lines, see… uh huh. We’ll see how many they miss.

This is happening for A Reason. When that Reason is uncovered, you’ll hear a chorus of “There it is.”

Who’m I kidding? The chorus you’ll hear in Haitifornia will be “Gubmint!! Come saaaave us!!! *snifflesob*”

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

    When the electricity goes off,
    people compensate by lighting lanterns, candles, and fireplaces.
    You know, flamey things.

    [raises hand]
    Ma’am? What’s the use of wind-generated power,
    if you have turn-off the power when it’s windy?
    [ducks thrown eraser]
    I think that deserves a front-page cartoon.
    Hold on, brb

    So basically, most of California’s going to be shut down.

    This week’s Northern California power outage could include the following counties: Alameda, Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Sierra, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Tehama, Tuolumne, Yolo and Yuba. In Southern California, a possible outage could primarily affect utility customers in Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Also under consideration are areas in Ventura County and portions of Kern, Tulare, Inyo and Mono counties.

    Hey Claire,
    How are your migration plans coming along?
    Can’t see ‘em in the dark? Oh….. sorry.
    /smartass.
    I really am sorry for all the crap that you and the rest of the decent, sane people in Haitifornia have to put up with.
    Day after day, the madness gathers speed like a giant turd rolling down the mountain. Unbelievable!

    I’m surprised they didn’t declare it Earth Day II. (This time it’s not voluntary!)
    Or do you suppose they have Nork-envy?
