Nuclear Reactor Failure Rains Darkness And Sewage On Southwest

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Nuclear reactors serving Southern California, Arizona and northwestern Mexico raptured themselves last night, leaving 6 million people to boil to death in the 104-degree darkness. Honest-to-god details from the AP report of the blackout: flights leaving San Diego airport halted, everybody was told to stay inside, mayhem engulfed the highways as cars swerved into oncoming traffic to break free of the gridlock, and, for good measure, 3.2 million gallons of sewage spilled out onto San Diego’s beaches. HAS THE CHINESE INVASION BEGUN??

No, America’s own citizens are the number one warlord when it comes to bringing America to its knees, thank you very much.

The outage occurred after an electrical worker removed a piece of monitoring equipment at a power substation in southwest Arizona, officials at Phoenix-based Arizona Public Service Co. said.

It was unclear why that mishap, which normally would have been isolated, sparked such a widespread outage. The company said that would be the focus of an investigation.

“This was not a deliberate act. The employee was just switching out a piece of equipment that was problematic,” said Daniel Froetscher, an APS vice president.

GAH, ARIZONA. THAT WAS OUR NEXT GUESS. “Some guy from Arizona” is always a good guess for “who started the Apocalypse this time?” [AP]

That's what we call a "light outfall day" here in San Diego, where fighting with the EPA to avoid upgrading the sewage treatment plant is the second most important local government activity, after devising additional schemes to pad pensions.

ChessieNefercat September 9, 2011 at 12:29 pm

So nothing has changed in the (yikes!) 19 years since I moved away? I lived there from the 70s through early 90s. The sewage spills were always blamed on Tijuana sewage wandering up the beach a ways, except when they had to close touristy Mission Bay because it was coming from, you know, San Diego's broken down system (infrastructure!). Then uh, well, uh, hmm. Squirrel!

Ah, yes, fecal counts. Don't scare the tourists.

That's what happens when you only have one tiny little needle exchange open one day a week and the cops arrest people for even holding a needle – everyone gets them from LA and throws them away as soon as they've used them rather than keeping them to return to the exchange.

"Throw some tax cuts at 'em. Particularly the power company. That'll solve everything."

You are absolutely correct, from the management perspective. The execs will all move somewhere and have their own private electricity system and backup generators and slaves to maintain them. A small, exclusive grid. No brownouts allowed.

Power went out as I was walking home on 6th Avenue in downtown 92101. Got through the first traffic signal fine; almost died at the second one, which went out at the exact moment I was crossing. Luckily a case of Cabernet had just arrived and I was okay until it got too dark to "read."

It was inconvenient to be without power, but no serious issues. My juice was back on about 2 a.m. Most neighbors got drunk or stoned and the temp broke nicely after about 8 or 9 p.m. so it wasn't bad at all. The sewage leak in SD is a recurring problem and it's never going to get fixed, just another band aid applied and switch her back on.

America's finest shit from America's finest city. My town fixed their problem years ago and everybody's happy with it. San Diego can't for some reason…

Ken's marketing for Dignity has gone too far.

i imagine the 92032 of the 70's is probably much different than the 92032 of today. it's probably more 92143 than 92109. i had a girlfriend who lived in 92077. it was almost a two hour bus ride from 92123!

You know that I always sing the virtues of Sapphire martinis around here.

If only you knew. Northern Californians are worried to hear each other referring to freeways as "the 5" or "the 101" as is the custom south of San Luis Obispo.

Hmm. I just realized that 90277 changed to 91977, not 92177. We moved not long after that. Yes, bus rides in 92077. I took my son by bus every morning from our house to his school 4 1/2 miles away. Two and a half hours round trip. And again in the afternoon. I could have done the trip faster by burro.

No. Vapourise it.

The Calif don't like it. Rock the Embarcadero, Rock the Embarcadero.
