    Here we go again!

    Welp, now the Auburn State rec area is on fire and closed....

    Ya know....even a simple man could figure this out.

    Priorities...if you weren't to busy chasing people with needles and doing what you were actually elected to do. Maybe people and businesses wouldn't be fleeing the state like it's......wait for it....on fire.

    See what I just did there.

    Get the fkkk out of people business and keep the state from burning down.

    Meanwhile I'm not even in the fire zone and PGE has shut off the power to my neighborhood 4 times in the last 6 weeks. No warning. No explanation.

    Hey, I hear you, and I agree with the priorities being mixed, and as a result, folks suffer...!
    Well, Siskiyou county is a-flame too, and seven National Forests are closed in the state...!
    So, I'm reduced to door-knocking for permissions...!

    Finally a win, luck, whatever. This fire would have been bad. The north/middle fork canyons are so steep they can't get dozens in there. It would have ripped all the way up the mountain...

    I had enough and finally called PGE to let them have it.. they claim a car hit a pole this morning...yea?

    Did a car hit a pole every week for 7 weeks?!?!??!

    They told me, all the computer says is that the shutoffs to your neighborhood have been for "level 2 emergency" but they couldn't or wouldn't clarify what that means...

    *******s....

    So I found a pge fire risk map that refers to tier 123. But that can't be it because it's just my neighborhood none of the surrounding neighborhoods and I'm at a relatively low altitude not fire zone imo. Most we get where I'm at are grass fires.

    On the map my whole area is actually in the 3rd tier...strange.. all the fires are at much higher elevations but ok, say that's the reason

    Where is my warning notice?!!?! Not a single warning for these "planned" shutoffs....

    fortunately we've had power throughout the fires. 40,000 acre fire across the river got 2 miles from the shack but recent rain put the hurt on it and 80% contained. Fire just above where I'm digging still going and it was so smokey today they couldn't fly....worst I've seen the smoke so far. Still managed some gold despite the smoke today.... slight headache is all. Hang in there it'll be snowing soon.....

    The outages are probably what are known as "rolling blackouts"....when they can't supply 100% power everywhere they cut power to random areas. eg Sounds like just your turn in the barrel.

    It's not though. I'm signed up for the alert program. Which is supposed to be 48-24hrs in advance for fire..

    There has been no fire in my area. Just 7 shutdowns 5 of which have been on the weekends. All have been a min of 4 hrs but none longer then 8

    There has been no wind and no alerts. I have gotten notifications of, and you can go to the online outage maps, but all after the fact. shut off and no explainrions as to cause.

    It actually rained last night...thunderstorms so maybe totally justified in a shut off but they don't say.

    On my way home from work I saw crews fixing the pole hit by a car. Phew.. but seriously I've still got weekly shutoffs unexplained.

    The next month or so should be real. Fun. Real fun can't wait

    Down here south California, we have genarators one for the well one for a small cooler n fridge, just went through 21 hours no power, 108 with humidity, it wasnt that bad an inconvenience for sure but nothing to raise a big hoorah over, when I was a young man here, we would just camp under the mesquite tree throw a little water around .

    We get these outages every year about this time monsoon season 30 minutes of storm 20 hours no power.
    Be prepared..

    Blame former governor Jerry Brown, he mandated that California go green on suppling energy to the state by 2045 so the Californian energy companies have been investing most of there monies into green energy instead of maintaining the electrical infrastructure, sadly more power failures are coming, forest fires caused by electrical failures are now the norm.

    Why would you blame a politician for mechanical failure?
