OCTOBER 21, 2019 UPDATE:
PG&E has announced there will likely be another Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) for Solano County this week on Wednesday and Thursday (10/23 & 10/24).  This means that I may be without power again.  To date, this has not affected my cellular phone service, but a PSPS does have the potential to.

Here is the PG&E Press Release:

UPDATE:
Much of Northern California is on the PG&E list of potential Public Safety Power Shutoff areas this week.  The IRS provides tax relief for those affected by disaster situations.  Whether or not a Public Power Power Shutoff because of severe weather would qualify remains to be seen; however, it would seem reasonable since California is the nation’s most populous state with a population of approximately 40,000,000 people.

ORIGINAL POST (September 23, 2019):

Northern California has been issued a “Red Flag Warning” by the National Weather Service.  For more information, see: https://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=usa&wwa=Red%20Flag%20Warning.

As a result, Pacific Gas & Electric Company is implementing “Public Safety Power Shutoff” events.  Because of this, there is the possibility that power to Vacaville will be cutoff, and you may be unable to reach me.  At present, Vacaville is not on the list for power shutoff, but this is a fluid situation and the situation may change. For more information, see: https://www.pge.com/en_US/safety/emergency-preparedness/natural-disaster/wildfires/public-safety-event.page.

Thank you for your patience.

Happy Constitution Day (Tuesday, September 17, 2019)

Constitution Day 2019 is Tuesday, September 17, 2019.

Celebrate what makes the United States special–the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  While the US Constitution should be one of the most cherished documents in the world, many US schools fail to even recognize Constitution Day and many, if not most, US citizens are unaware of Constitution Day.  Below are links to the US Constitution and Constitution Day.  Please pass this along.
