Linemen have reportedly restored power for roughly two million customers in Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian last week, the governor said on Sunday.
45,000 linemen from all over the country* were pre-positioned before the storm hit. In 4 days (Friday - Monday) they're restored ~ 80% of all outages.
The media are biased jerks who have changed Mark Twain's old addage. It used to be "If you don't read the newspaper you're uninformed; if you do read the newspaper you're misinformed." Now you're uninformed no matter what, but you're only misinformed if you read the paper.
* I saw one in the last day or two from Kansas City. That's a long way to come to help out, and we appreciate it.
