  •  Rural California loses power for long stretches, (7+ / 0-)

    too.  We have an old family cabin in the Santa Cruz mountains that we visit on weekends during the summer, but almost all of the neighbors live there full time.  Last November they lost power after a windstorm and it was out for five days.  That was a bit longer than usual, but in the winter it's not uncommon to lose power for a few hours once or twice a month.  This is in a canyon with 500 households.

    PG&E sent checks to everyone in the area to make up for the inconvenience.  Fortunately, it was not big deal for us since we don't live there full time, so we passed our check on to the local food bank there.
