Cheers on doubling down on your approach. The school systems are good enough that folks learn the definition of random. I’ve held power and internet through ice storms and lost it for 2 sunny days because a drunk driver hit a pole. Consider it more susceptible to random events than say, Boston.

Figure out a backup system, and laugh to yourself when you never need it after you buy it.

The weather is such a big thing. My dad worked on the water in the mid-Atlantic and by his late 50s, I’m not sure if the dead of winter or the height of summer worried me more. He wound up retiring early because the job was literally killing him and he was only qualified to do more of the same work.
