Posted from my phone.

At 15.30 h San Diego County lost power for reasons unknown. Millions are affected. High today in 90s.

Hospitals are being prioritized and people are being told to stay home. Wild speculations are flying and there is a building sense of panic.

Yep. Fire/damage at an Arizona switching station which feeds power into that area of California.

Power will be out "well into tomorrow", so looks like everyone gets a 3-day weekend.

No, going to the beach, popping anti-depressants, and having a barbecue. San Diego ain't LA.

Some friends in that area have power already. San Diego proper and Dana Point. Anyone have word on elsewhere?

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."
