  • Sticker shock: Developers of the stalled Feather River Inn project say they are stunned by the Graeagle Fire Protection District’s demand for an up-front $250,000 annexation fee.
  • Scam revealed: A Quincy man was almost certain an offer to earn cash as a secret shopper was a scam... But he decided to play along.

Power outage in East Quincy

Feather Publishing

Updated 4:00 p.m.

Local power is restored the moment this fuse (see photos inside story) at the corner of 1st Street and Highway 70 is replaced by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. worker Kevin Moore. Residents heard a loud “boom” at 1:24 p.m. Monday when the fuse blew.

Moore kept busy most of the day Monday replacing fuses on power poles. Heavy wet snow overnight created a buildup on local power lines and trees. The weight of the ice and snow can cause tree limbs and entire trees to fall onto power lines, knocking the lines and poles down and breaking them. The extra weight can also push the lines onto each other, as in this case, causing an outage. A PG&E representative said 217 customers were affected by this power outage in East Quincy.
