Why is it that no other areas of the country are having these problems? How were the California power lines constructed differently than the rest of the country? I live in Pennsylvania with lots of really big coal fired plants in this area. We have high voltage power lines running everywhere and I can’t remember any incidents of fires caused by these lines. What’s up with PG&E?
    There are many variables causing the fires. Homeless, cigarette butts, car fires on the side of the road, arsonists and the utilities no updating their equipment.

    Some of those lines are 100 years old. They chose not to update for bigger profit.

    Sasq my boy,

    Don't take my word for it, Son2 is a Journeyman Lineman as you know. He is currently working in the Rockies for some major coinage. When he was researching places to go he considered California. His research within the Lineman community revealed that the Regulations imposed on Power companies made it extremely difficult for them to perform necessary maintenance and upgrades.

    If you want to be a Lineman, don't go to California. If you want to be a redtape/paperwork doing bitch who gets written up for stomping and killing a cockroach as you raise your bucket truck to repair a line and get held up because some homeless transgenderd democrat global warming mtnally ill person doesn;t like what you are doing then go to California and get nothing done. He said the money is the same but the likelihood of getting in trouble while not getting anything done is much greater in CA.

    Very sad.

    By the way, he used to work for a large regional electrical supplier in the South East but Linework in the Rockies will net him in 8 weeks 1/3 of what he made all of last year. Crazy.

    I've been so darn busy lately! No time to log in and read, let alone respond to anything. My only tie to the board here is I've been trying to keep up with the Denton and Sas Podcast...lol. Prepping and life goes on though. Hopefully with winter approaching my projects and commitments will dwindle some.

    It seems many CA insures are no longer issuing fire insurance or not renewing policies . All playing into CA take overs. Watch now for calls to force the issuing of insurance at low rates . Forcing others to cover the cost. This is how CA works.
    If I had a mortgage and my insurance was canceled or was not renewed the lender would call the loan in default. Good luck CA. But don't worry CA will force someone else to pay for it.

    Funny you should mention that. I was in grade school in Menomonee Falls during the year JFK was assassinated. I sat next to a guy that became one of my best childhood friends, simply because our assigned seats were alphabetical. Both of us have C.B. as initials. I am blessed for the that seating, because we still converse--except he now lives in California. He is career Navy--still the prankster, but he found California his paradise.

    We were on the telephone yesterday, doing his favorite sport I call, "He's still alive, she's dead." I grab the old Periscope 1968 Edition and make the necessary adjustments to the 'senior class' picture section.

    As this relates to California is that I was going to get him a decent knife, he doesn't even have a common folder. Then again, it is California and I don't want him arrested by SWAT for having an illegal "Wisconsin knife."

    Of course, the bikers in California have been openly skirting the law since 1947. I'm thinking about starting a postal service called "Angel Assistance."

    For a remarkably reasonable rate, a real-deal Hells Angel will deliver any package at any time and you can safely tell the police, "No officer, I haven't received a thing from UPS..."

    Now more fromj CA say they are leaving. Close the borders before they do the same things to other states they did to CA. They never change.

    I've heard that. They hate the complexion and State Government so they move to a new state and make that "New California."

    BTW, Wisconsin is full up. We need mega amounts of the land to keep the Guernseys fed and making the best dairy products in the entire country. We already have the barricades up for any traffic coming up from Illinois. We'll take in a Minnesota citizen, but only if he can name all 10,000 lakes.

    Sooner or later the Wisconsin Posse Comitatus will launch a daring raid to free U.P. Michigan...
