I'm DONE with PG & E! I've burned over 15 gallons of gasoline keeping my generator running to cover power outages that sometimes appear to have no rational causes. This is the latest example and I'm fed up, there were winds, but why the heck weren't they prepared? It's not like they didn't have weeks and weeks of good weather to maintain their power infrastructure. Next PG & E bill I pay, I'm deducting $50 for the cost of gasoline and general inconvenience of having to fire up the generator and reset all the clocks afterwards. Maybe everyone else should do likewise and maybe they'll 'clean up their act'!
