That looks like the Phantom Zone from Superman 2.

Seems like power has been out more than usual the last 6 months (when the weather is not an issue). A while back I had two messages from PG&E about an outage that day, but no outage until the next day plus the day after. Spending a lot of time resetting clocks lately.

And just a reminder...
When the traffic signals aren't working, it's a 4-Way STOP sign. Not a yield or a go like h3ll 'cause it ain't a red signal.
And you can go after you come to a complete stop. May be a looooonnnngggg time for the green to light up.

MV had a brownout in a different area (I'm on Rich Avenue by El Monte/ECR) from 8 pm to maybe 10. It was a major concern to my appliances which kept switching on/off. Finally powered down on everything and turned in early.
