Omg it's crazy at work


#1

PG&E is supposed to shut off the power tonight.


#2

Fetch yer enloops and a real headlamp - and work by that -

Improvise - adapt


#3

It said it could take as much as five days to fully restore it.

Oh, and the link to the address lookup doesn’t work


#4

Say what, they’re turning the lights off in the BA?


#5

Yes. And I think it’s high time PG&E was made a public utility.


#6

Wow, that is unusual, but after the paradise fire fiasco, I guess they want to try and be safer.


#7

mrsWab was finally able to do an address search and we are about a block away from a shutoff zone. :sweat_smile:


#8

Can you link me to a place to check? Thanks in advance.


#9

She must have got a lucky timing window, for me it vacillates between timing out and page not found. Maybe you’ll get a lucky click.

Map #19 at the top of this site may help enough, click the square-of-9-dots under the main map to get the array of maps.

Billdo, you might want to take a gander as well.

Edit: the link Apey just posted has the same map app on display.


#11

Thanks for the info gents, we’re also just a few blocks, maybe 3 from shut off area.


#12

Power’s still on, I knew they wouldn’t shut it off!


#13


#14

A bit late but this popped up in my news feed today… easy address lookup


#15

Are the shut offs only to residences, or are some businesses and industry getting shut down too?


#16

It seems they’ve left the power on closer to the main highways but if you’re an individual or business who isn’t near a main route you’re probably shut down.

A friend of mine in Napa said he drove to work in Sonoma and to Vallejo today and no traffic signals working either way and just mass traffic chaos.


#17

Has the feeding frenzy calmed down in the store yet?


#18

day off yesterday and today! I’m probably not driving all the way over there tomorrow if the power is still out.

I’m lucky, my power never went out.
