Earth Day in California

It's going to look like this:

Extra off-the-hook-crazy irony points id the lights go out in San Diego but stay on in Tijuana.

Yep, kids are on a generator now. Sigh... NO gas stations open within 50 miles. Hope nobody needs to go anywhere... Most grocery stores also closed. ONE open in a nearby town, and apparently jammed!!!

Thanks for the post! Gosh, I hope Google Earth won't embargo night shots of power deprived Bay Area counties taken tonight from their surveillance satellites.

It's a practice run for WTSHTF.

What about all those EBT cards that can't be used?

No gas? Good...we know where you are.

Might get spicy.....

I am puzzled that so far not one of the stories I've seen has tried to point out that the lights are going out in politically red, rural areas, not in the big blue cities. There is a red rural California, just numerically out voted by the looney left.

Greg at 8:32pm.

Who is going to report this? The Media? The same ones that worked hand in hand with the anti-everythings from the cities that stopped measures that would save the rural people from burning up or freezing or drowning or anything...

The same ones that self-annointed the previous president, when he was just a no-nothing junior senator in the beginning of his first term?

The same media that didn't cover Benghazi, or Fast-and-Furious, or all the sides at the two rancher standoffs, or, well, just about anything that would make anyone on the left side look bad, oh, like Hunter Biden. Or the missing tapes from Obama that the LA Times recorded where he openly states that most of the rumors about him are true.

Things like that?

The only people who are reporting the politics of the affected regions are bloggers. It's like the city folk all read "The Hunger Games" and took the wrong ideas from it.

Well, California, YOU voted for this! Oh, you may not have voted for some bureaucracy to pull your plug, but either you voted for the scum that did it, or you never figured that they'd actually do something like this.

And it's been years coming, too. Every time you voted for the latest, greatest, Greener Socialist idea, every time you figured "not my circus, not my clowns," you voted for blackouts! You regulated and restricted things like thinning out forests and clearing firebreaks, so YOU chose to turn off the lights!

Do you think Gavin Newsome would be doing half the crap he's doing if YOU stood against him even once?

So now you're in the dark. You don't know what's waiting for you out there beyond the range of your weakening flashlights. You don't know where the "boogeymen" are, but you know they're out there.

And you're looking to the east, to Texas, and Arizona, and Utah, and other places where the lights are still on, all night, every night. And you might just find yourselves welcome in those places.

Just leave your lunatic, Liberal politics west of the Colorado River.

I'd wager most of these people in the cities are too stupid to keep a flashlight or battery lantern around much less a kerosene/gas camp stove or a propane burner for heating a couple of things. They probably don't even keep a bit of cash in small bills and can't see beyond the next day on their debit card.

I hope they enjoy 'Earth Week'. I wonder how the duh-versities will behave?
