We lost power sometime after midnight last night.
Along with seventy two thousand other San Diegans. Our power company, SDGE, tired of being the defendant in fire lawsuits, made a preemptive shutdown strike in the face of super strong winds. The wind was stronger and more powerful than I remember in forty years here. Thankfully Todd trimmed our huge Monterey pine last week, which is pushing a hundred feet tall. And our equally tall redwood decided to stay planted in the ground and not face dive onto our roof.
So no power at home, no power at work, until about an hour ago for the latter. I had business in Escondido around lunch time and a few hours to kill so I went back and had a brisk walk at the newly renovated San Elijo Lagoon.
