So says PG&E via their twitter feed just before 3 p.m. Friday afternoon. PG&E doesn't yet have an estimate for when the power will be back on, so if you were looking forward to heading home to the neighborhood, microwaving a hot pocket and firing up your TiVo, might we suggest alternate plans for the evening? No word yet on what is causing the outage, but we'll update when we know more.

Update: As of about 4:30 p.m, PG&E says the majority of the customers affected have their power back on, but some 1,500 customers are still in the dark.
