WHAT WORKED
 

We’ve been obsessing over what services and devices failed in Hurricane Irma.  When life is back to normal, we’ll start making improvements.  FPL has lots of reckoning to do. South Miami will revise our tree code to keep trees away from power lines.  But lots of things in our City worked better than expected.
