So I have a cousin who lives in San Diego. He was affected by the power loss for about half a day or so; he's got some bad food, but it's no big deal.

What's freaking him out is that he's noticing a lot of people seem to be missing. He's telling me that his usually busy neighborhood is eerily quiet, he's seen about half the number of people walking the streets, and even traffic seems to have lessened.

It could just be one of those things, but I was wondering if anybody else was experiencing the same thing.

I would say that peoples alarms are probably not working and no one wants to leave there house unprotected. Also why leave your house if the power is out like whats there to do?

Is the power still out? If so, people are probably not going to their jobs and businesses are closed- thus resulting in fewer commuters which would mean less traffic.....

These power outages show how crippled we all are without the government to take care of us. Sigh*

Although I live in Los Angeles County and was not affected by the power outage things are the same ol' same ol'. Same lousy @$$ traffic especially on the 5 south heading towards the San Diego area. It's not quiet up here


Maybe folks in that area are just staying at home. I heard lots of businesses were closed due to the outage.

They could have gone somewhere to stay while the power was out? Maybe it's been back on for awhile but maybe the people just felt like staying for awhile where ever they went during the outage. Maybe they just thought after all the stress they needed a vacation? Heck, I would. I bet a lot of them will return in the following days.

I think something like would be on the news. There would be people flooding the police department with missing persons reports. Don't you think. Please post again to update us on the situation.

you nailed it man. Great points. I know I wouldn't bother going anywhere if there was a power outage like that here. Sure,I might just go for a walk or something,but that's about it.
