Not sure, but there was another (?) in the middle of hwy 1 just north of Ocean View Farm in Montara, just before the Slide, on Friday.
We've seen them near our house in ELG, too. Lots of dead ones caught in cobwebs, too.
...and it's back on again. 6:03p.
Power went out at 2:30 in El Granada, back on at 4:15. But just went out again at 5:45. I called the PG&E line (800-743-5002) and they weren't aware of another outage.
Our power went out at 9:45, with a loud boom. (We're in El Granada.) Houses around us were dark, too. 30 seconds later it came back on...sort of--like a brownout. Around 10:30 it went out for good, then came back on at 2:30am. Had no idea there was a fire...yikes.
I tend to agree on the underground wiring, Leonard. Last night the electricity went out on our street in El Granada for about 30 seconds. It was the same situation others described: Very light rain, no wind, no sounds of cars crashing into power poles. When I called PG&E to report it the (very pleasant) service rep told me that an animal running across the line can cause this kind of temporary outage. Hmm.
My husband and I find ourselves checking Coastsider every day--it's our only reliable source of information about the Slide and how it's affecting our lives and culture here on the coast. We can't thank Barry enough. It's funny how many of our friends who live outside of California are just now learning about it and feel it's important enough to call us to hear our POV; frankly, I can't imagine being interested enough to follow similar news in /their/ hometowns. Regardless, I now send them the link…
