Air quality is pretty bad. Had some pretty large pieces of ash on the car this morning. The live map looks pretty bad, especially around RWC

This is my car this morning after what must have been some pretty big grass fires near me in West Sacramento or maybe some of the smoke and debris from the Bay Area fires carried in the valley by winds.

I got this back when there were intentional outages back in Oct. Yep out of stock now. Just for small electronics

I happen to forget to charge the dang thing last month. And of course when we needed it back on Sunday evening, dead backup battery. The next morning we booked a nice 2bed 2bath room at Residence Inn

I bought a generator from a BARFer last year. Haven't had to use it yet but glad I have it standing by.

Everything hit at once. Resources are spread incredibly thin over nearly inaccessible terrain during an extraordinary heat event.
