Living With The NorCal Blackouts

Power lines

Pacific Gas & Electric's planned blackouts last week left millions of Northern Californians in the dark. Businesses lost money, people with health issues that require electrically-powered medical devices scrambled to find alternative power sources, and schools were forced to cancel classes.

We survey two counties' experiences. Thadeus Greenson of Humboldt County's The North Coast Journal will join us, along with Clay Ross, Superintendent of Shasta County's Mountain Union Elementary School District, Columbia Elementary School District and Junction Elementary School District.
