PARADISE, Calif. -- A Paradise supermarket that's lost thousands of dollars worth of product in the blackouts is gearing up for yet another potential outage.

"The second time it was just like, oh my gosh, not this again. Like you can see, this whole freezer, gone," said Jason Strickler, head clerk for the Holiday Market.

It's not once but twice now, the Holiday Market has had food gone bad due to the PG&E blackouts.

When the Holiday Market lost their power, thousands of dollars worth of product went into the garbage.

The store bought a generator after the first blackout to gear up for the next one. Management took away the generator in order to help a Holiday Market in a different area, also in the dark, according to Strickler.

"We got an OK Produce trailer that goes down below zero degrees so we kept some of our frozen stuff, but, it was, you know, couldn't save it all," Strickler said. 

Until the Holiday Market gets a generator, the staff is going to be saving as much product as they can, putting it into the cold storage trailer.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
