Mtn Girl, I'm on the east side of Boulder Bay and had the same experience. I finally just turned the breaker off because the power going on and off so often isn't good for computers and the fridge and such. It came back on at 4am here.

I don't know the cause and was hoping to find it here on SoCalMountains.

Thanks for chiming in TruBluDad! Big Bear is a mess also. I think it is a solid line from the Big Bear Village to Highland.

Wow! Traffic is the worst ive ever seen in my decade+ years in the mountains.
330 is bumper to bumper down to the 210, bumper to bumper from Skyforest to who knows...

That was weird. There was no weather going on here in Lake Arrowhead and there was a storm last night here in the mountains?
