Power Outage - again!

So Power went out at work again, I spent a good half hour shutting down the servers so they wouldn't cook without the AC. We kept some of the DNS servers up as well as the mail server that routed mail for other offices. The power went down a little after 4 pm. I left at almost 6 pm and told my boss to give me a call if he wanted help when the power came back on. He just got a call from PG&E, I guess they are saying the power will be back up around 8 pm. He says, he doesn't think he will need me. I reminded him about the great pizza place that he should have dinner at.

I swear the last few years I have been through way too many power outages. It seems like I can't go more than three months with a power outage. WTF, I mean it's not like we have winds or weather that would cause problems. I bet you anything this was cause by some worker not paying attention and cutting a very important wire. oops.

I had no idea there were still rolling power outages in California. I would have thought that that was a thing of the past.

They aren't really rolling... It's more like repetitive. I'm not sure what caused the power outage today but I'm sure it wasn't too many people having their AC on. The power is always going out in my neighborhood because a tree is cut down, bringing down lines, or a car hits some power box (this really has happened many times).
