    PG&E has got to be near the bottom in keeping the lights on. Every little storm brings about darkness for way too many of us. As a youngster I can remember during the summer months; Cal Edison tree trimming crews would roam our neighborhoods looking for trees that could be a problem in a storm. They would even knock on doors to gain permission to access and deal with the most concerning branches threatening their power lines. I don’t think PG&E even employs tree trimmers. In my opinion, for what we pay for electricity! they should wash your car after they finish trimming your trees.

    Hmmm, wonder why I did not see any protesters last night? Perhaps, as I suspected, fair weather protesters here in California.

      I bet you don’t find a lot of people protesting during a blizzard or extremely hard rainfall. So I guess my question you is what’s your point? To paraphrase Forest Gump, stupid is as stupid writes…

      sloweb, I’d say the protesters are very smart for not going out in this weather.

    It was a wild ride last night living aboard the boat in Morro Bay.
    Our dinghy flipped over and is still floating upside down behind the boat.
    So my wife and daughter were stranded ashore last night and my son and I are trapped aboard until the storm ends. With rain like this you also get a reminder of every leak the boat has.,.ugggg.
