Downtown book store Towne Center Books found itself without electricity this morning.
Owner Judy Wheeler said business was being conducted as usual with available outside light while PG&E worked to restore power. Telephone lines were also down.
Although the store is not as bright as usual, we are open for business. PG&E "We think power will be back on about 2:30 p.m.," Wheeler said in a statement. "Meanwhile, we're here to serve you."
"'m sure it will all be fixed by tomorrow May 8 at 11:00 so be sure to join us for Coffee and Conversation with Billie Sharp," Wheeler added. "Her book, "Lemons and Lavender," is full of great green cost saving tips for cleaning and taking care of aches and pains plus delicious recipes. This could be a useful graduation gift, Mother's Day gift or gift to oneself."
