    I just saw that on the news and it pissed a lot of people off. I didn't catch what area it was at though. The rental I have there is close by a forest reserve, so now I'm really curious.

    boy they were talking about doing that but five days?? that will mean tossed frozen items galore from freezers. Oh well, maybe they are used to it or will get used to it. We use much too much electricity and what happens... we keep needing more for every item they sell to us. hmmmm.

    I have a friend who lives near Oakland. They let you know what hours it will be out. Hers was from noon to 5pm yesterday and she has not posted of any after that yet. I understand the reasoning and I hope it works after all the devastation they faced with the fires last year.

    There is talk of moving it to the southern part of the state, but I'm sure that would really create an uproar!

    I read it was effecting the Oakland Zoo. You'd think they could at least leave that alone.

    I live in the Sacramento area. My city has its own electric company so I'm ok.
    Lots of the surrounding cities have no power. They are just starting to turn it back on.
    No power is better than wildfires caused by the wind.

    I'm one town south of Laura44 and our two cities are in separate counties. My county is served by a user-owned utility company that is not planning any outages. Oddly enough, we had an unplanned power outage the night that the planned outages began, but ours was just bad luck and only lasted an hour.

    Thank you all for being concerned about us!

    My DD was telling me about this. It's also in the area where my grands and their inlaws live ( Santa Clarita, Newhall, Canyon Country, etc). What about people who rely on electricity for life support? There could be legal consequences to this decision. Not everyone can afford generators.

    Before my brother could afford to add a generator to their house in New York, they registered their daughter (on a ventilator) with the local fire department and power company. In the event of an unscheduled power outage their block was on the list to have it restored earliest, and if that wasn't fast enough or if there was ever an issue they could bring her and her equipment to the firehouse and she would use their backup systems to maintain her equipment for as long as needed.

    They did eventually get the generator, but families that have those kinds of need are (generally, I hope) taken care of through local resources. I believe there was also partial costs covered for the generator itself by either health care or some other aid service?
