Power Outage = Wind + Tree Falls

High winds and downed trees are nothing new for Montclarions.  If you have both of them, then you learn to live with the consequences.  A few folks noticed power outages very early this morning, while others just spotted the news trucks and figured something was up.

KRON Montclair Report - March 9

It turns out the power outages occurred in homes located above Colton and Gaspar – and we believe power has been fully restored already.   PG&E’s first priority was to repair service, and then clear up the trees that caused the damage.

We have spotted PG&E trucks all week around Montclair, not only this morning.  Oakland Public Works trucks have been showing up as well, as they deal with recent drain stoppages or overflows.  Yes, the storms and winds are having their usual – if a bit delayed – seasonal impacts on the hills now.

    Yep, we lost power several times during the night and again this morning. We’re above Colton and Snake. The outage this morning was longer, and zapped my PC’s hard drive 😦 Fortunately I was able to fix it (*knock on non-fallen wood*).

    Hard to believe it’s still ‘winter’. My wife and I had a lovely walk around Lake Merritt yesterday. Though it was getting a little chilly by the time we got back around and stopped for dinner.
