Yesterday on NextDoor, someone wanted to know what was going on with so much PG&E activity in our neighborhood.
I was curious, too, and even more so because today I saw this outside my house – a fleet of PG&E trucks, complete with a porta-potty. I counted four large trucks, and an earth mover.
The earth-mover was parked way at the back, waiting.
There was even a truck blocking one of our garages. When we came out, the PG&E guy running the project offered to moved it if we wanted. As it happened, we didn’t need that garage today, so we said not to bother.
Two men were digging a hole near the house opposite.
I asked one of the PG&E men what it was about. They’d done a survey some time back, he said, checking for leaks. They were now fixing the ones where they’d detected a problem. He said they had already completed a couple of jobs.
After the terrible accident in San Bruno, I’m glad they’re being proactive here.
The earthmover came down by our house. I’m not sure why it was wearing so much jewelry.
The truck in front of my house tipped up, and the earthmover grabbed the soil. I presume they filled in the hole they’d dug.
Within a couple of hours, they were done and had moved on. The road was empty, the signs and traffic cones gone, and all was quiet.

That’s my house on the corner they were working on today. They have worked closely with us for the last couple of months to arrange to do the work and have been prompt and professional in responding to our concerns. Only complaint is that they spray painted the decorative rocks but I understand the paint is water based and should wash off in time.
[Webmaster – That’s good to hear. It would have been nice if they’d posted a notice or something a few days before blocking our garage, but then again, they were right there and could have moved their truck if needed.]
