Dumb bastards.

If you continue to live in that shit hole, you deserve these beatings in spades.

The power infrastructure here is in a can't win situation. Things like the Camp Fire may have been able to be prevented, then when you switch off the power people rage.

Add into that political shenanigans.

Right now there is peak hours enforcement out my way, 5pm-8pm

So you pay more during those times, just when many people get off work or want to do things like the laundry etc.
When in doubt, roll the bones.

All I know is my electric bill averages between $80 to $120 per month. Now that the sunlight is waning, the power bill goes up. Sorry to hear that you live there.

It’s those overpaid lineman’s fault. I’ve witnessed them first hand sitting around eating breakfast on double time. After working only 8 or 10 days in a row. It was delicious though. Yum.

Over the summer it ranged from 250-350 out here. Our fridge and washer/dryer are new and energy efficient. We just replaced the pool pump, hopefully that helps next year.

But it's crazy, I guess we could spend a fortune to redo the air conditioning, it gets over a 100 here sometimes in Sacramento, kind of a necessity.

But even if everything was real efficient, I'm sure it would still be 200-300 a month over the summer.

You can talk to any Californian, something pisses them off one way or another. I don't think many people are content here any more about much, no matter what you believe politically.

I am confused. That article says one thing then another. So IF a severe wind event happens, they will shut off the power but they are thinking the wind will happen between 5-8? But it also says they will be shutting it down.

CNN's article had a higher count of people w/o power:
"We would encourage residents and businesses to prepare for being without power for potentially as long as seven days," San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said in a press conference Monday night.
Nearly 2 million people could be affected if there is a shutdown Wednesday, Liccardo said, as well as about 67 schools.

They are advising people to shelter in place.
Facepalm

Sounds too insane to be true........

It seems rational coming from that state if you are thinking like an insane control freak.
