    Columbus, TX. :) Trivia answer: I'm pretty sure that the Columbus SuperCharger is the current poster child on the Tesla SuperCharger page:

    Columbus platform is much higher, though:

    I stand corrected. :) Is Columbus, TX really at risk of flooding or is there some other reason for them doing this?

    Yes, there is a river nearby. Even the hotel is elevated.

    re: Columbus, TX


    I just looked it up. It's the Colorado River and apparently that has nothing to do with the state of Colorado.

    Colorado River (Texas) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If it were me I'd elevate the electronics at all the Florida superchargers.

    "colorado" is Spanish for "red". We have the Colorado River, which is often red. We also have the Red River. We also have other red rivers.
