Power Restored in Belmont

Approximately 6,000 PG&E homes and businesses in Belmont were effected by the outage that started at 9:00 p.m.

Although there is still no explanation of why the outage occurred, by 10:20 p.m. Wed., power was back on to 6,000 PG&E customers in Belmont.

Thank you to Patch users for keeping us updated.

And, for those who missed it,  the Giants beat the Rockies 7-1.

Joan, Go Giants. Kind of an interesting thing happened at our home last evening. Shortly after the power went out last night my wife and i went to bed, thinking that we had turned off all our lights and the TV. Earlier this morning, when I got up, I found out that we had apparently not turned off the TV off properly. As I walked into our living room I noted that our one (1) year old female Robo Hamster had been watching her favorite programs throughout the evening, as we rested in our upstairs bedroom. Her cage is right infront of our TV and she really likes certain TV programs, especially American Idle, So You Think You Can Dance, the X-Factor, and of course really enjoyes watching her favorite baseball team, the GIANTS. When I turned off the TV to take my wife to work, she quickly got into her nest, apparently very tired from watching TV from approximately 9:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., this morning.

I think you need to take a photo of that Robo Hamster watching T.V. and send it to Belmont Patch Bob! That's a great story!

Joan, Thanks for the feedback, what a great idea. My wife and I will pick out a couple of recent photo's of "Trixie" watching TV and send them along.to you.

Are we ever going to find out what caused that power outage? A job for Patch!

Yes, Paul...we are working on it! Stay tuned.
