Hello...

FYI for those not seeing the Los Angeles fires on the news constantly.

http://www.ladwpnews.com/go/doc/1475/318099/

The Station Fire has the potential to cross and affect the Department's
500 KV transmission lines northeast of the Acton area today. These
high-voltage power lines are critical to maintaining a steady supply of
power to the city, especially as demand for energy rises throughout the
day.

To make up for the potential loss of power transmission, the LADWP has
activated all in-basin power plants in order to generate energy.

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
