Californians meme their way through PG&E power outages


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The PG&E power shutoffs have led many to social media to… make light of a dark time.

PG&E said it will shut off power in portions of 34 California counties due to severely dry and windy conditions that are expected to create a high fire danger.

They estimate the shutoff will affect 800,000 customers across Northern and Central California.

In the Bay Area, it’s estimated 274,000 customers will be impacted.

PG&E initially announced the potential power outages Tuesday afternoon.

And within minutes, the Twitter community did what the Twitter community does — memes.

Some are even creating conspiracy theories that the shutoffs will start a “Purge”.

And PG&E’s letters made it quite easy for the meme makers.

Though this is a serious situation, it appears that a little humor is how some people get through it.

Stay safe and happy memeing meme creatively!
