SDG&E: Are You Mad, Thankful or Indifferent?

After Thursday's blackout, we're taking a poll on what your mood is toward the power company.

After asking on Twitter if people felt mad, thankful or indifferent to SDG&E, we received the following answers:

"I think it wasn't their fault. But I think people need to be better prepared. I know I am, I had power through out the outage."

"Thankful. That was so much less dramatic than it seemed after their first press conference."

"It was not their fault, but they should look at ways to avoid that in future"

"I think they did a great job getting the power back on so quickly."

"They are ultimately responsible, but I'm not mad."

SDG & E did really great this time. Power back by 2230 & I wasn't late for work Friday. As for the poor sole in Yuma, hope he's not oging to get sacked in these times over a accident. Even tohugh it was a very bad costly accident I think we all learned something from it...

I think this a wake up call to the utility company how one small mistake can do so much damage. It is scary. They should have some other fail safe plan in place so this can't happen again. I think they did do a remarkable job in restoring power so fast. Kudos in that reguard.......

I've got solar and (once I got home!) rode it out with nary a bump. We ALL should be as self sufficient as we can be. This is NOT going to get any better.

A great wake up call for everyone. I could not believe all the idiots at the gas stations that "couldn't get home because they were on fumes" Don't they know it is not good for the engines to run it on the dregs in the tank? What happened to the prepardness kits? It is not all about earthquakes.

As far as I was concerned, a few more nights of real darkness would have been welcomed; I think it would have done humans a world of good to reflect and reevaluate what their value system is based on. There are no idiots in this loss of power we just experienced. If it was due to one single person or a group, the main fact to remember is that to err is human. Some errors can have more drastic and tragic consequences which might serve as a reminder to us that going nuclear may not be a fail-safe. Anything and everything that man creates hast the potential for failure. The question would then be: how much of ourselves do we wish to risk for other sources of energy?
