Long power outage

with one comment

It began around 1:00 p.m. I called the Power Outage number at PG&E: you enter your phone number and get an estimate of when the outage will be fixed. Response was that “the outage is widespread, and we expect to have an update on Saturday, January 5, at 12:00 a.m.” Hmm. Not so good.

At least The Wife and I have phones that plug into the phone jack and get power there: our emergency phones, which we bought to supplement the cordless phones we normally use. Good thing, too.

My power’s back, and I’m shopping right now for a battery-operated LED lamp so with the next outage I can at least read. And I’m enjoying a cup of tea.

  1. The stuff that is useful for power outages is also good stuff to have around for your earthquake kit…
