This is why we need to take the money away from the State so it does not get crazy ideas to spend it. How in the world are they going to get enough fuel to run a 500KW generator anyway?

Most have natural gas generators in this area. During rita they worked fine.Of course this is for after the storm when they let you return.They autoimatically come on once a month and switch-over to keep them in running order.
