Our Power Grid is Secure and Fishing is Fine

Jody our fearless Florida Keys Electric Cooperative representative fights a grin as I photograph the new 1 plus inch bullet resistant customer service barrier. 

Joey shows off his Yellow Jack dinner for two.

Life on shore,

You feel like you are in an aquarium.

On the aquarium, you feel like you are alive.

Sorry, I just couldn't resist. 

In case you are wondering, the new destroyer of life as we know it, the POLAR VORTEX, descended on the Keys and made fishing yesterday mighty sloppy.  Hey, the bite was slow but there was a bite of sorts that was worth the effort according to Mike and Brian suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous vacation fortune with a bluster day on the water.  According to windfinder since the Sombrero Key lighthouse wind meter is out of order, the winds were in the mid twenties, (knots that is) with gusts that seemed a tad stronger.  We almost had a chance to do some serious angling but with the wind shifting and freshening we were force to tuck tail and hide behind Pigeon Key where the combination of gusty winds and cheeky terns made out trip more comical than productive.

Stripper fishermen brave much worse and have less success at times, but in the Keys yesterday was a fine drinking day.  Today Brian and Mike are fishing with Captain Zack while I lick my wounds and prepare for better weather on Sunday when the POLAR VORTEX hobbles over to Europe or some other destination.

In the 1970s, the POLAR VORTEX caused quite a stir with some thinking it signaled the start of a new Ice Age.  This time around it is causing quite a stir with some it is signaling GLOBAL WARMING is worse than any thought imaginable.  Considering the state of the art security required for FKEC employees, I think the real signal is that someone's cheese has slipped off their cracker.

Perhaps mine has, but come Electrical Terrorism Threat or POLAR VORTEX elongation I am still ready to fish if you are.
