Possible 48+ Hour Power Outage Starting Tomorrow

I cannot believe there may be a possible 48+ hour power outage tomorrow! From a PG&E email:

In most cases, we would expect to be able to restore power within 24 to 48 hours after weather has passed. Depending on weather conditions or if any repairs are needed, outages (weather event plus restoration time) could last longer than 48 hours. For planning purposes, we suggest preparing for multiple-day outages.

Things to Do

theCoderSchool Opens in Downtown Walnut Creek


1330 N. Broadway, Walnut Creek

theCoderSchool, which offers coding classes to children, opened recently in downtown Walnut Creek. Last year they opened in San Ramon.

From their website:

At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, as a way to channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun.

Shopping

Blazin Jayz Smoke Shop Closes in Lafayette


3566 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette

Blazin Jayz Smoke Shop, which opened last spring next to Learning Express Toys in Lafayette, closed recently, probably related to Lafayette’s flavored tobacco products ban this spring. I remember being amused by the vape flavors they offered such as, “apple e-juice, grape, banana cream and Hulk Tears” but I didn’t think most of their business comes from the sale of such products.
