    A couple days ago I saw  a lead in on the NEWS that the power was going to be cut again...  nothing after that ,
    so was it a false alarm or ???   I hope it did not occur.

    120,000 lost power up near the wine country. Average about 24 hours of lights out. Storm coming this wednesday and more outages. This is the new normal BTW.

    Thanks Dave. Whipping up the fires again or are they mostly contained??
    Oh NO! not the wineries!  The Plebeians will have to drink water now. :confused:

    The upcoming storm is going to be cold and wet. rain and ice. Not enough wind to trigger the safety shutdowns - I hope.

    But the latest meme - When do you start to defrost the turkey ?   Don't worry, pg&e is going to do it for you !

    They won't defrost you Mike, or us   ;)

    A total PITA to be in business in the wine country. Losing millions per day!
