    Sorry to hear that. I sure hope they don't do that here.

    That's when the power co. start cutting the power off to try and save electrical usage. They generally do it for a few hours a day.

    I remember when Calif did that to keep the grid from being overloaded. What a mess, you never knew when the power was going to go off and how long it would be off.

    That can be deadly in the record heat we've been getting.

    Oh no :( I am so sorry... what a disruption in every aspect!
    What about those who depend on medical equipment or can't take the heat without A/C due to medical problems?

    Today we didn't have power from 6am up to 4pm in my business. The only thing I could do was clean up. So I got rid of tons of papers no longer needed and tidied up my desk.

    They said on Ch 8 it was for 15 - 45 minutes only. SO time prepare. It's getting bad here and this is the first day.
