    California - the place where their people want to teach the rest of us on how we should live. Right. :(

    Actually, reading this thread, it looks more like everyone else is trying to tell Californians what’s wrong them... 🤔

    You can thank us for our almost 460 billion in contributions to the federal budget later... the second highest is New York with just over 281 billion.

    Kex, don’t confuse them with the truth. They prefer living in their fantasy world of nonsense and stupidity.

    Ok, ok don't turn this political or anything, or at least anymore. Many different points of view here, some good some bad.

    I find the CA wildfires have more to do with what we have done or failed to do. These wild fires suck, can we do more to stop or limit them, yes.


    As for CA being the most screwed up state... All states have their up and downs, doesn't matter which way they swing.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    "California's Taxpayer Burden is -$21,800, and it received an "F" from TIA. California is a Sinkhole State without enough assets to cover its debt. California only has $114 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $388.9 billion."

    Oops, wrong hole!

    Your forgetting the amount California receives from the Federal Government.
    It is a net $12 per resident.
    In past years, it is true California was a net giver state by a relatively small margin, but recently it is a net getter state.

    From USA Today:

    40. California
    Net federal funding: $12 per resident
    • Total revenue from fed. gov.: $436.1 billion (the most)
    • SNAP benefit recipiency: 8.9 percent (tied - 12th lowest)
    • Median household income: $71,805 (8th highest)

    Source data comes from the Rockefeller Institute of Government 2019 Report.

    Well I have to admit, I lived in CA for 4 years. Yes, somewhat sequestered at Vandenberg AFB, but after I left the Air Force, well, it's a nice place to visit. Been back a few times to visit friends, and the Mrs has family out there. Just not my thing. That's OK, IMO.

    Still love all you guys out there! And, still wishing you all the best during this time! :)

    Try to remember who started this thread, OK? I believe it was from a Californian who
    was (understandably) upset that he might lose power for a few days.
    You can't voice complaints then get mad at people for agreeing with you that yes, the situation sucks.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Here in Northern CA it is fire season, and our power company has caused some major fires the last few years. Since they are being sued, and have declared bankruptcy due to those fires they are into overkill trying to not start anymore fires. So, at midnight they are shutting off power to quite a large area, and millions of people, for two days. I am right on the edge of the cutoff zone, and not sure if I will be affected or not. To be on the safe side I am listening to the stereo, and drinking beer tonight.

    Well, as of Saturday evening PG&E is saying 99% of power has been restored. They say that the lines have to be inspected before power can be restored, and they can only be inspected during the day. If this is going to be the new practice during fire season then they need to come up with an automated line inspection method so they can quickly restore power.

    Yep, it's state law and Huggies was spot on about it. You and the Kexter weren't.

    Then we can both agree to be mutually amused by each other, and there are certainly far worse goals in life than being a source of amusement for others, even if it is at one’s own expense, but I’m not the one screaming for recognition as president or moderator.

    It’s actually rather sad that any of this matters to you. I had thought that you were better than this. You certainly could be.

    So what's the problem?

    i43setky0sqk.png

    This obviously passed the urban area yearly inspection.
    The power lines are all well away from trees and dry vegetation that cause fires.
    So there is nothing here. Move along.

    Wrong again.
    New Ca law (enacted by PUC and signed by Gov Newsome) REQUIRES utilities (ALL, not just PG&E) to de-energize areas that face severe wind threat/ fire risk.
    This has the Doppler effect of potentially impacting huge swaths of the State if that threat impacts a “Transmission” (500/230KV) Tower corridor(s).
    When that level of shut off is enacted, you don’t just flip a switch back on. The law requires PG&E to physically/visually inspect every single piece of equipment (down voltage) of the shut down BEFORE it can be re-energized. This means every tower, line, transformer, pad apparatus, substation, pole, reclosure, etc.

    Find the ACTUAL law and post a link. Until then, it’s an unsubstantiated proclamation.

    And while you’re looking, find a sense of humor. It’s the internet, not real life!

    Not saying it doesn’t exist, and I spent some time searching, but I can’t find it. This link is the best I found regarding power line inspections.
