I don't like mixing politics with research, but it seems like someone could have lobbied to prevent this man made disaster. Now for the positive, I was thinking and had an idea. Which usually occurs during thinking. Russia has extreme cold weather wind turbines with heaters in oil to keep them at operating temperatures. The winds produced from the fires might get collected with a high temperature wind turbine. It might even be useful on other planets down the road. Be sure to bury the power lines though. I make this idea free domain. Personally, I'd rather you guys shut it down or send the data off location and get to safety. Good luck and stay safe.

https://news.berkeley.edu/2019/10/27/monday-uc-berkeley-classes-canceled-due-to-limited-power/
By Public Affairs, UC Berkeley| October 27, 2019

Marc Fisher, UC Berkeley’s vice chancellor for administration, and Alicia Johnson, director of emergency management, issued the following message on Sunday at 10:40 a.m.

Good morning. We are writing with an update about the PG&E power shut-off. But first, we must extend our best thoughts to employees who are themselves affected by the fires in Sonoma County or have family members who are affected.

PG&E disconnected power to the campus yesterday at 10:30 p.m. The adverse weather conditions (combination of heat and high winds) are forecast to persist through early Monday morning. PG&E estimates that they will begin inspecting power lines on Monday afternoon. Once that is complete, PG&E will begin the process of restoring power. Then, after power is restored, the campus then begins the process of reconnecting to the PG&E power supply. This entire multi-step process takes several hours.

For this reason, we have made the decision to cancel daytime classes on Monday. Instructors are encouraged to make adaptations whenever possible, according to their best judgement, consistent with campus guidelines.

Even if they are supplied by Natural Gas, there are many places where the pipeline is above ground and is susceptible to wildfire threat. They will turn off the gas and watch the gas pressure at each ground exit location. An increase in pressure at any point above normal atmospheric is an indication of a fire near the exposed pipeline.

They ,ay have large underground supplies of Diesel or a pipeline feed from a depot that is not affected by fire. Only by cost of fuel used will cut that off. Motor Diesel (DF2) costs more because of the extra filtering and additives.
If it is to be - it is up to me!
