So, you have an electric car and PGE shuts the power off for a week to prevent forest fires because the state doesn’t allow them to clear the brush and you now can’t charge your car. You’re forced to stay home but there’s no power in your all electric home so you can’t cook. You decide to BBQ the meat in your freezer so it doesn’t go bad in the fridge with no power. You load up the charcoal grill, add the charcoal lighter fluid, throw a match in and then go back in the kitchen to prepare your meat while the charcoals get hot. A sudden breeze comes up and blows sparks over to your dry grass that’s dry because they don’t allow you to water. The grass lights and catches your fence on fire. That spreads to your house then to the woods that surround your house. You couldn’t call the fire dept because you couldn’t charge its battery ;ast night—no power. The wind picks up and the out of control fire continues spreading and soon becomes a full blown forest fire destroying thousands of acres and hundreds of homes.
No problem. The gubmint investigates, fines PGE another gazillion dollars and decides to take action to prevent this from ever happening again.
They ban BBQs.
How true, how true.
sometimes the truth can be so simple, its beautiful.
That scenario would make a great Allstate ad, with Mayhem.
That pretty much covers it! Sucks to be them!
