Over 1,000 Still Powerless in Dorrington Area Area as PG&E Continues to Make Progress After Storm

Arnold, CA...The latest as of last evening from PG&E..."We appreciate the patience of our customers out of power in the Sierra Foothills. Crews continue to make progress in difficult conditions. The electric grid is interconnected and restoration starts with main circuits, then neighborhood circuits and then individual homes.







As of 6 p.m. today (Friday, March 20), approximately 6,400 PG&E customers remain without power due to the storm. These customers are primarily in Nevada, Placer, El Dorado, Sierra and Calaveras counties. We know that some customers have been without power for some time. We understand the hardship of this situation and want those customers to know our crews are working safely and as quickly as possible to restore their power.

More than 145 PG&E crews are working to restore power in these regions, along with 20 snow cats and helicopters patrolling lines for any additional damage. Crews continue to work as conditions allow and areas become accessible. Low-elevation and often heavy snow results in many trees falling into PG&E’s electric equipment, causing significant damage and resulting in outages. Repairs and assessments continue, and restoration is expected for most customers by Sunday. These extended outages are due to the significant damage to equipment in some areas.

In one community in Calaveras County, the extent of damage is widespread and substantial. At this time, 32 crews are working to rebuild the electric grid in the Big Trees Village. More than 80 poles are being replaced with hundreds of crossarms, several spans of wire and transformers. More than 400 work locations were identified in the assessment phase. It’s likely that repairs needed to restore power to these customers will take until early next week.

In El Dorado County, 38 crews are working to make repairs at more than 400 locations as assessment continues in some areas as access has been impeded by snow and down trees. We are working to communicate with those customers regarding any updates to restoration. Crews will continue to work in all areas until customers have been fully restored."

When is the Bistro shutting down? We have all the bay people vacationing, hanging out in big groups on the patio! What the the Fu#K is that about, if you want to Hang OUT , take your disrespectful asses back to where you came from!
And please do not buy all the food in Big Trees on your way back!
And you wonder why you are so disliked

    Some of us “hanging out” are locals who haven’t had.power in a week or even homes badly damaged in the last storm. Just because some of us are younger families, have all our teeth or even like to put on decent clothes going out in public doesn’t necessarily make us from the Bay Area.

      Oh, you have all your teeth and put on good clothes but your homes were badly damaged? So you go out instead of working on your home?
      Maybe instead of going out dining and drinking you should invest your money in maintenance on your home, cutting trees so they don't damage your home, buy a generator? You know, provide for your family, do what a man is suppose to do for his loved ones, provide and protect, a safe, warm home?
      But we know, partying and getting high comes first in your book. Yes, I know your fu of sh it because I just got my power back on, I used a generator, and we were fine, exception was the generator wasn't strong enough for laundry.

        All that has been done by many. This storm was a bad one and trees have gone through roofs in places. There is nothing to be done until power is restored and more snow has melted. Being critical of you prior and now because you really don’t know what you are talking about, simply venting about your unhappy existence and how you never caught a break. Those who choose to live and work here know your kind all too well.

        Maybe you should shut your mouth and take a drive to see the number of homes damaged. Generator doesn’t do much good when you’ve got a hole in your roof from a snapped cedar. A couple of roads back in here were also closed for a couple of days at both ends so that people couldn’t leave or return. It is bad and power still not back on for many as the list shows.

        Would like to believe you but given I just shoveled off our deck and looking at the hole a snag punched through my neighbor’s metal roof, going to go with the others and say you’re just plain wrong.

Big Trees Village encompasses parts of Dorrington and Camp Connell - and why the numbers spelled out for these communities individually above makes no sense. There are trees through some homes. Decks and roofs smashed e everywhere. Some streets are also blocked by work crews so that owners can’t get out or return home. It looks like a war zone but on a positive note, lots of line workers on the job. Going to be a ton of work up there for contractors, tree guys and lot clearers.

    Agreed. They seem to be counting a lot of the Dorrington and Camp Connell outages as Arnold. Please know there is a lot of damage up here no matter what others are writing.
