    LTBMU is except for Meiss Backcountry, Desolation, and the actual fire zone. Humboldt Toiyabe won't reopen until tomorrow at midnight, at which point there will be some sort of as yet described closure at Scott's Lake. Drove out to Kirkwood yesterday and it looked like there was an abandoned fire camp at the Scott's Lake Road turnoff, but it could be a future fire camp instead.

    No dispersed camping or target shooting in Tahoe NF. Plus the prior fire restrictions. Otherwise open.

    TRTA and Tamba have posted detailed summaries on Instagram of what’s closed currently.

    Seeing you at the morning drop off spot is about the only time I'll see you because you're way too fast for my ass!

    Power outage planned for Sunday 4am. Sometimes these get canceled. No word yet on how long it will last.

    Good times. Itís pretty shitty when it happens when temps are low and people need heating.

    They've been saying since June that fall is the season most likely to have an outage. That's when fuel moisture is lowest and the big windstorms are most common in our neck of the woods. Part of the problem is that the transmission lines come up from Reno and the outage can be due to conditions anywhere along the lines, even if fire danger is not particularly high here. Fortunately temps aren't in pipe freezing range. Hope folks have a wood stove option or a generator or another place to go. Anyone who's rented an STR starting Sunday should have a blast. This being the first one I think things will be pretty rough with communication during the outage, Truckee still doesn't have all it's community resource centers up and running. TDPUD can't keep the power on at Donner Lake when the weather is good. 3 5-7 hour outages this summer. And when it comes to power outages I'm a total baby.

    To be fair to the TDPUD, they say they only found out about the public safety outage program in June--not nearly enough time to strengthen infrastructure, obtain generators and fuel, build microgrids, etc.

    Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll call it off.

    Upper elevations in the 80/50/88 corridors west of the crest have had to deal with PSPS or possible PSPS events with pretty low temps. They have the same problem with transmission lines. Itís too bad the PUD axed their previous GM, he had gotten NID up to speed and ready for extended outages (and heís a good guy).

    Itís interesting to see how the different forests are opening their backcountry differently. TNF, you are only allowed to camp near the pct and no fires ever in stoves. Inyo, the backcountry is open. We were considering the grouse ridge area for a weekend, but thatís a no-go.

    Can't camp in the backcountry, huh? But maybe I'll get a lot of freeze dried food, my headlamp, sleeping bag and tent and set them up on my deck during the power outage. Having no power doesn't bother me backpacking so why should it if I'm home? I can go weeks without a shower backpacking, why not at home. If I get desperate backpacking I jump in a frozen lake. Well, there's a lake right across the road, and it's not even cold.

    What are your messages saying? The ones i get, which I assume to be location dependent sound like it would have to be called on for us, rather than something to be called off.
    Liberty may implement a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) for THESE AREAS (https://libertyutilities.maps.arcgis.com/.../index.html...), due to extreme fire conditions. A #PSPS is not imminent at this time; however, customers are encouraged to plan ahead for the possibility of an extended shutoff that could begin 1:00am Sunday, September 19 and last more than 24 hours. Customers who require power to operate life-essential medical equipment are strongly encouraged to call 9-1-1 if they are unable to secure necessary alternative power. Please join us for a PSPS briefing on Friday, September 17 at 5:00 p.m. Join by clicking HERE:

    It seems like the regional director closed everything, but then left it up to each forest manager to decide when and how to reopen their forests.

    My message from TDPUD says "Safety alert: extreme wildfire dager forecast in next 24-48 hours. Wildfire safety outage scheduled for Sunday September 19th at 4am,"

    I expect TDPUD to update the announcement closer to the event. I would assume Liberty would do the same.
    TDPUD and Liberty both get electricity from NV Energy on the same transmission lines.
    I don't know why the time of the outage is 3 hours different.

    (POTENTIAL POWER OUTAGE PLANNED DUE TO FIRE RISK) We received notice that, due to extreme fire risk, NV Energy may de-energize transmission lines that deliver power to Truckee at approximately 4AM on September 19. Visit TDPUD website for more info: https://tapit.us/K0n7M3

    Likely because yours is a definitive time, and ours seems more like a range

    Perhaps still too much stuff in flux, but curious, has anyone heard anything about when Highway 50 between Kyburz and Meyers might reopen?

    ^no, but yesterday when they reopened 88 they said it was a priority because 50's closure will continue for a while. No date set as far as I know

    Truckee/Tahoe school district just sent an email saying they met with utilities this morning and were told a power outage is now unlikely.
