OROVILLE, Calif. -- People in the North State are preparing for yet another round of PG&E blackouts.

PG&E says 303,000 people in 25 counties will be impacted.

"Just being in the dark and not having your alarm clock working in the morning and stuff like that to make it work and there's a lot of things you kind of have to adjust yourself to," said Lee Jones, a PG&E customer who lives in Concow. 

"It's probably a good thing, but I'm sure it's an inconvenience for everybody as far as it goes," Jones said.

"I don't mind the power shutoffs, I don't mind them at all," said Nicole Morris, a PG&E customer who lives in Oroville.

But still, Morris, says there are people left without solutions.

"There's no system in place for the people who are scared alone, disabled in their homes," Morris said.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
