Original Post:

Easter eggs are hard enough to find, but then when the power goes … eh, sorry. Forget that.

According to the PG&E Outage Map, an estimated 1580 customers are without power in a huge swath of land encompassing Loleta, Ferndale and out the Lost Coast. The cause of the outage is unknown, but somehow PG&E estimates to have power restored by 5:30 p.m.

Feel free to weigh in in the comment section as to where you do and don’t have power. And don’t fret about the prospect of a candlelit Easter dinner. Cherished stories come out of the times things go wrong. This could be a good family memory someday, maybe, probably.
