Same here. I had this happen to me the last two years I've been in NorCal, and I was hoping it wouldn't be as bad down in SoCal as well. Guess this is going to be something us California people are going to have to keep dealing with moving forward :(

There are options.  I'm currently* looking at upgrading and expanding a smallish (4kW w/10kWh storage) solar PV system that we installed about 20 years ago.    Amortized over 30 years like the power companies do the system cost us around $0.17 per kWh but it has already paid for itself at the insane rates SCE charges.  When we built our system the technology was just starting to be usable for normal residential service if you didn't mind doing all the engineering yourself and could convince the power companies to let you do the net-metering thing with a grid-interactive system.  Now prices have come way, way down and equipment is much more capable, with things like microinverters, Tesla PowerWalls, etc.  Much more mainstream too.  There's companies who will provide installation and service for PV systems the way other companies do for HVAC systems.  For the same $0.17/kWh I could build a system at least 3x as capable today as the one we built back then too.  At SCE's $0.42/kWh top-tier rate I don't need SCE anymore.  SCE is pricing themselves out of the market.

*no pun intended.

Rather cool, rain, hail, and a fairly good thunder and lightning show at the moment. I was trying to sleep but with all the racket I decided a midnight snack and watching the show out my window was the more interesting option.

Temps in the 70s & sunny today. They say we won’t even get out of the 30s & windy on Thursday (I know it’s April Fools Day, but not appreciating Mother Nature’s sense of humor)

It's still snowing. ε-(>.<;; We don't typically get what you would call 'spring', just 'second winter'.

Rainy and a bit on the cool side (45°F) today. May snow tomorrow but I hope not! I've been having an itch to go swimming again.

Temps were in the 60s & finally got a break from the rain. Had to mow the front yard for the first time this year.

Currently below freezing, though it’s supposed to make it to 60 this afternoon.

Harsh thunderstorm is finally letting up. Was under a tornado watch for an hour but it's just been lifted. I've got this music on low, letting the rain compliment it somewhat. Just trying to sleep. 😴

Stay safe and comfy out there. 🙂

Was sunny and 50 today. The last 3 days days has been just above freezing and down pour. I loved it. I live by the ocean and I love seeing the rain over the open water. I will take some pictures at some point and show you all.
