    OMG, that's bad, both islands (Ocracoke and Hatteras) closed to all except residents at the height of tourist season. We're down there in September...
    You'd think they would have the cable plotted pretty tightly!

    Looks like maybe its time to expand the Tesla micro-grid. I didn't see any mention of Tesla in the 4 articles that I read. Lots of chatter about shipping large generators over though.

    Yeah, PW2's and some solar would have helped somewhat for local loads....
