Krista,
Would you be up for getting involved with the Florida Bioregional Design
Project? We could use someone's support that understands the importance
of solar power as it relates to solving our energy needs. Sound energy
policy, as I'm sure you understand, is but one component of the whole
that needs to be addressed towards the creation of an sustainable
Florida. Please contact my directly (info on my web at www.kenbenway.com
if you see anyway you might plug in.
Ken

HaHa! Jedd, you obviously have not spent much time in
Florida. It is very rare that we have cloud cover for
the entire day. During the Summer, we get scattered
thunderstorms in the afternoon, but most of the day is
sunny. In the Winter, we barely have any rain at all.
Now, if we could just find a way to harness the power
from lightning bolts, or from the winds we get during
a hurricane... ;)

Historical trivia: For many years, there was a daily
newspaper called the "Clearwater Times". Any day that
the sun didn't shine, the paper was free. They didn't
give away very many free papers.
