Seems to me that we went many years without a power outage, now there’s one frequently. WHY???????

I think it is the new instant shutoff switch that deactivates the line it something touches it supposedly to prevent fires from their lines. Good idea but they can’t figure out how to set it so if a fat bird sits on it it does shut the system done. The real delay problem is they have to physically walk the lines to make sure they are OK. Theory it’s good reality not

Do we really need to cover EVERY power outage, if your power goes out pretty sure people know to check pg&e website and it shows every power outage in the state. More importantly, can we cover Internet outages?
