Terrorist Suicide Bird Attacks Power Station

Some of you may have noticed my absence for a few hours on Saturday morning:

PG&E: Saturday’s massive power outage in Merced caused by bird

Pacific Gas & Electric officials said Saturday’s massive blackout was the result of a bird flying into power lines outside the El Capitan substation on North Highway 59.

The blackout affected 16,237 PG&E customers living in parts of Merced on Saturday morning.


“It was pretty extensive, and the outage covered a lot of Merced,” said Denny Boyles, PG&E spokesman.

“Animal-caused outages are more common than you’d think. Typically, it’s animals getting into the equipment,” Boyles said Monday. “What probably happened is a bird connected with two wires.”

FIVE AND ONE-HALF HOURS of darkness because of a stupid bird!

No lights, no internet, no air conditioning, no coffee. I couldn’t even go get a cold beer because the power was out at the liquor store too.

It was pure hell.

    Tis actually ridiculous when the stores can’t even check you out because they can’t count the money without the cash registers, you know. I’ve thought that one for years. 😉
