Question of the Day

Question of the Day – Do you Agree with PG&E Shutting Down Power Yesterday?

Yesterday PG&E shut down it’s power grid for much of the day in many parts of Contra Costa although not downtown Walnut Creek, which is where I headed to eat, charge and use my laptop. On the one hand this was done to lower the risk of a fire starting due to strong winds and dry conditions. In fact as I walked outside I did notice it was quite blustery. On the other hand weren’t there other precautions that could have been taken instead?
