No fires up here in the Sierra Foothills, and no earthquakes. But the power outage was a total pain for a small business like mine that works nationally. For rural California, like Nevada City and much of rural America, can grow our economies with the internet. But when the internet goes down for days, without a blizzard in sight, well . . . it's hard to sustain and grow our rural economies. As an example, in my county we have a small and growing tech industry with a great quality of life. But power outages make it very hard to grow this industry outside of big cities, which while there were some power outages, but much less so. No doubt, this experience will further spur more people looking to solar, backed up by batteries rather that relying on tying into the grid like we do in Nevada City Cohousing. But don't be waiting for California's to bale on our beautiful state. We're use to these natural disasters just as people in other parts of the country are use to floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

The power outage was more problematic for those areas affected by it. Not well thought out. Berkeley researcher losing 2 years of work; disabled folk discovering that the local “relief station” set up by PG&E wasn’t wheelchair accessible, that sort of thing. But basically we are all OK, at least in Northern California and the Disability Community has been energized and organized to respond vigorously at the PUC meeting upcoming.
