If those are power cables on the ground, don't put your feet down

It looks like TV Cable, and Phone wires to me.

But, power cables could be nearby.

I'd probably try to look around the corner before deciding if it is a good day to ride. It may be that a bicycle can get around those trees better than a car.

By me, at least, they are all on the same poles. If the pole is down, the power lines are lying somewhere too.

I'd be very careful picking my way through such an area.

It isn't too often in winter that Canadians feel sorry for Californians, but now is the time. You people are going through a very bad time.
