Re: Sailboat Takes Out Power to Half the FL Keys
We were cooking dinner (electric range). When the power went out we went over to the Winn Dixie for takeout. There were all kinds of restaurant workers in there from the places that didn't have generators.
When the power goes out the supermarkets and hotels are the places to go for a quick bite as they have backup power.
We're adding a Generac to our house -- if it ever gets built...
“The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
