Sounding like a power main coming from AZ went down (i.e. physically...no official cause announced yet). Caused the domino effect which made San Onofre's level to fluctuate & go offline. (Heard most of this on the radio.)
Primary: nada
Secondary: emptyness
Bottled/Fridge: Sierra Nevada Celebration
Bombers/Growlers/Aging: The Abyss, Firestone 19th Anniversary Ale
Kegerator: sanitizer!
Coming Up: something spiffy, most likely

Apparently much of Mexico north of Rosarito and parts of Arizona went down too. It hit Southern California up to Orange County. Fortunately I now reside just north of the orange curtain.

An employee at a power substation in southwest Arizona likely caused a massive outage that left more than 2 million people without electricity across the Southwest and northern Mexico.
