I'm good here in HB, though we did get a warning that south OC could be shut down. I don't think they'd get as high up as us though.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

My daughter had no power in Indio for about 8 hours. They were packing the car so she could bring the baby home, when they got power back. It was 117 degrees when the power went out, luckily their house is very well insulated, they paid for extra insulation when they built it. The house was heating up, and the baby was getting pretty uncomfortable. Luckily the failure occured and it was only a few hours from sundown. They didn't know if they would have have power next day or not. Also he would have had to stay home and tough it out, with the dogs and cats, letting them in and out. Its way to hot to leave dogs in a yard all day, they have to stay in. Even in a hot house at least they are out of direct sunlight. All is back up and running in the entire county now.

It sucks when the power goes out. I hafta like read or something. Laugh

I'm on a well operated by an electric pump, so when the power goes out, the water stops as well. Kinda sucks when the power is out for three days.. no flushing toilets. :wtf:

I'm thinking about buying a generator now for when this happens. With a well you really need one. One neighbor got mad at another becasue the generator was too loud. He was beating his neighbor was his flashlight and they arrested him.
