Don't be alarmed if your Cali friends and family are out of touch for a few days

Massive, nearly statewide fire safety power shutoffs have already started. I'm quickly snapping out emails to family and this before it quits here. It's insult to top injury with out of control blaze in the North Bay with mandatory evacuations.

There are gasoline lines, rushes on dry ice, batteries and other emergency supplies happening in panic mode everywhere here.

1. Be safe!

I cannot imagine what it is going to take to fix the mess California is in but I hope it is possible to make a good start on it fast!

5. Just called my mom to let her know not to worry...even though we are not in a PG&E area,

Our cable & internet provider (phone too) has let us know that their lines run through PG&E service areas and we can have outages too...
Already had out internet hiccup for a few hours the other night.

Winds picking up here in the Sierras

STAY SAFE everyone!
