There are a lot of people in the Brookvale Park neighborhood who are glad that Tuesday was unseasonably cool. A broken PG&E cable kept about 100 customers in the dark and without power from 7:30 a.m. to about midnight.
The failed cable was located underneath Fremont Boulevard near Nicolet Street, but for some reason a lot of the homes most affected were on the other side of the shopping center there — on Purcell Place, Baldwin Place, Ronda Court and Eden Court.
About 100 customers lost power from 7:30 a.m. to midnight.
PG&E had to dig up a portion of Paseo Padre Fremont Boulevard (my bad, too much Fremont Festival talk) to replace the cable, which is why they say it took so long to restore power to people in those homes.
