This week's Falcon 9 launch from Vandenberg AFB is now tentatively scheduled for no earlier than January 11. The launch time has not been announced.

There is still no launch date for the Delta IV Heavy.

Is it something about VAFB? Bad vibes coming from the ground?

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.

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