    Pacifica power went out AGAIN around 1 a.m. I waited for a bit before calling, and their voice system said they had no reports of power out, while their own online map showed 5,000+ customers affected. Power came back on after 3. Hoping it will stay on now.

    And Pacifica is dark AGAIN. Lights on for 15 minutes then gone again. Starting to seriously doubt PG&E’s competency.
