This is how petty I’ve become: When I heard on Monday night that some people not too far away from me got their power restored by Pacific Gas & Electric I wasn’t happy for them. I was just bitterly jealous—our power has been out continuously since Saturday. (That’s my daughter above, hanging out at home in the dark.)

I consoled myself by remembering my Marin County, California, neighbors would probably have electricity for less than 24 hours. It’s supposed to be windy again today (by “windy,” we’re talking 10 to 15 mph during the day, and 2 mph tonight, per my weather app) and PG&E scheduled yet another “public safety power shutoff.”
