Update: PG&E Planned Power Outages Looking Increasingly Likely

 

Following is a portion of an email I sent to our District 3 Supervisor, Anaiah Kirk, this evening regarding Comcast’s proposed ‘service’ during the probable power outage this weekend.  If you know more that I do about Comcast’s plans, please share in a comment.

“This is what Comcast will be offering to us during the upcoming power outage—just like the last one.

  • No back up system in their plans.
  • No generators to keep their facilities running.
  • No credit for service not rendered.
  • No phone service in an emergency.
  • No internet
  • no no no no no”

This does bother me since they (Comcast) are giving no warning or heads up for their plans.  Their services can be vital to some homeowners.

REGARDING THE POWER OUTAGE:

Be sure you have gas for your vehicles, generator, grill, etc. and that you have semi non-perishable food on hand to get you through a few days without power.  Batteries for flashlights?  Be sure you have your necessary medications on hand.

Check on your neighbors.

And enjoy the peace and quiet.  Read a good book.  Play games with your family or friends.
