Original post

You may have heard that PG&E may be shutting off power in our area this weekend as part of their Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) program. We are also anticipating a significant wind storm that may bring down power lines and trees. The wind event and the proposed power shut off are projected to begin on Saturday afternoon . If the power is shut off, PG&E estimates that power will not be restored until late Monday or Tuesday .
