Widespread Power Outages Hit Calaveras County

Arnold, CA...PG&E's power grid is experiencing widespread outages this morning with over 10,000 customers without power. The Hwy 4 corridor has outages from Angels Camp to Big Trees. There are also numerous outages in Tuolumne & Amador Counties. At this time though the largest number of outages are in Calaveras. Ironically Tuolumne & Amador experienced larger outages in the last storm so it seems to be our turn this time...

I woke up about 5-power was off and then it came back on around 6 here this a.m. here in Angels Camp. Not sure how long it was off though. If you have TV Dish you may want to get out there and sweep snow off. Then you'll get a signal

    Nope. The grid is turned off in a big swath of Calaveras because of the tree or trees across the Route on Route 4. They first had to remove the trees before going on to plowing.

        Oh well. People move up here then they want everything turned on right away like the big city. The power could have been off for all night for all I know in Angels but we survived. My folks lived up in Dorrington for years and they survived many power outages-were well prepared had plenty of food, a fireplace to keep the house warm and potentially cook something on, flashlights and large windows for the daylight. Sometimes they would just read til everything came on. They didn't have cable hook ups back then and of course cable finally came around but they were happy with 3, 6, 13, 10, and 13 all Sacto. channels. They were like old school and grew up in the radio days-Dad even before that so go figure! If they got bored and if Gene Miller dug the driveway out (he had a lot of contracts back then), then mom and dad would just drive down the hill to where there was power lol-not all the time though. They managed and were always well prepared. I'm the same way. In fact I did a little bit of shoveling this a.m. and got some exercise shoveling that 4 inches of wet snow-seems like it's gonna melt fast especially if it get rained on. So look at the bright side folks it won't last forever and spring will be here soon!

              Summer Shut Offs
              Posted on: 2019-02-10 11:54:48   By: Anonymous
               
              PG&E is threatening to shut off transmission lines, not just distribution lines this Summer when they deem it necessary.
              The neglected to shut off the line when warned of arcing just before the Camp fire. 88 Died .
              Last Summer PG&E did shut off distribution lines, not transmission lines in our area. Why they would threaten to shut off transmission lines which will shut off power to many non fire threat areas is the question. The transmission lines are in towers and pose no threat to communities, where distribution lines do.

              It is suggested all PG&E customers in high fire areas, and now others to have their own power sources to prepare for these black outs.

              I asked the ARCT forester why the right of ways are not cleared further back to lesson fire threat, he said "PG&E only requires 12 feet clearance, not more, too high a cost. Obviously this is not enough. Sagging distribution lines in high wind areas have caused fire from arcing, this must be addressed. PG&E must perform inspections, and address any problems such as hazardous equipment that may cause fires.

              The Butte fire was caused by tree contact with a PG&E distribution line. This may happen in rare occasions, but the number of fires caused by inadequate clearances , and poor equipment maintenance is not acceptable. Instead of paying high dividends to stockholders, PG&E must invest that $ towards maintenance to prevent fires.

              Be prepared for more blackouts this Summer.

                Pg&e is required to keep 4 feet clear aground here, but will clear 12 feet in high fire threat areas. You can thank the NIMBYs that refuse the extra clearance when your neighborhood burns down.

          Jumping to a lot of conclusions there buddy. . .

          I don't see anyone complaining.

          My guess is you don't even live up here. . .

JOHN. This is in reference to your ad placement for snow removal: you’re never EVER supposed to put a paid ad spot near a news article of the same topic matter. That’s journalism/ad placement 101.
