                              So to mitigate one potential disaster you risk creating at least 4 others? People using gas generators, food poisoning from ruined food, crime from folks taking advantage of an over-taxed first responders, no water, I could go on. This seems more like a "if you are going to blame us, we'll show you what it will be like if we (PG&E) aren't here." How about a program of improving the primary distribution, monitoring and quick response teams?

We're way off the track here folks. I've lived in California since 1950 something, and this is nothing but total hype. That's not to say your power won't be turned off and you won't suffer hardship. And why is the guy wearing a guerilla hat from South America?

So, are they going to simulate the Santa Ana winds this time using energy weapons? They have been saying for the past 3 weeks that Santa Ana winds are coming. What they’re having problems creating them or something. Tired 😓 of this horsesh¥t.
