    Sounds like a good excuse to stay in bed for the night.

    Gather 'round a candle and tell horror stories! Like the one with the hook in the car handle.

    i'm more worried about the incubators and heating pads and freezer full of fish and the phone - all critical parts of the wildlife hospital i run... we've never gone more than a few hours without power - now they're saying it may be more than 5 days... once they turn it off they have to inspect it all before turning it back on...

    on a lighter but still annoying note, our band has a very sweet gig Friday... now it looks like maybe not...

    The last direct communication from PGE said they expected to be able to turn it back on Thursday PM. Fingers crossed.

    Wow that's gonna be nerve wracking..

    The thing I always notice when the power goes out here.. is how quiet everything gets. Well and dark if its night time.

    PG&E is posturing for the cameras so they can claim poor mouth and avoid responsibility for their crappy maintenance of their lines and pipes. I hope the state PUC shuts 'em down and takes over their operation until a responsible provider is found.

    Yes, we do, and as we all know, ”dope will get you through times of no electricity better than electricity will get you through times of no dope.”

    It may be small comfort, but, if the phone is a landline...it should still be working.

    Can't you scrounge a generator for the important stuff Monte? I suppose everybody else is trying to do the same though.
