500,000 CA customers losing power today
Our power company PG&E is shutting off power today to prevent fires because there has been high winds forecasted. This is being done because of the Camp fire in which they were blamed because of downed wires.
Right now there is no wind in my area or any other areas, but they have shut the power off in Northern CA area. We are going lose power from noon today till noon Thursday or later by the time they check the wires and slowly turn it back on. That means we will have to throw out a lot of food.
We do not have a generator, never needed one till now. We have been here 42 years and this is the first time PG&E has done this. The last time we lost power for a long time was 1989 eàrthquake. Our 30 year anniversary is coming up Oct 17.
