I’m starting this about 9:50 AM on Sunday the 20th of December.
The power went out twenty minutes ago. This worries me because of all the hacking that’s happened recently.
Most likely it’s a tree branch or something that has knocked a line down. Or someone has hit a pole, like last time.
I’ve contacted my friends out west. Reno has power. So not a national thing.
Am I paranoid? No. If you study it our infrastructure is very open to attack.
I’ve called the local electric company (who are awesome) and gotten the usual recorded message of “a power outage has occurred that may affect you, etc”. I’m sure it’s nothing.
