Brighten the stars over Lake County and curb light pollution.

Brighten the stars over Lake County and curb light pollution.

As we go about our busy lives here in Lake County, many people do not even think to look up anymore. Why should they? There isn't much to see except for the occasional plane or handful of stars. There is a cosmic giant hanging over our head that many people do not even know is there. This celestial monstrosity is the home of over 400 billion alien suns and stretches from horizon to horizon, but is basically invisible to our human eyes. This sleeping stellar giant is our home galaxy, the backbone of night, the Milky Way!

Generators at major home improvement stores sold out statewide and had to be shipped in as customers drove hundreds of miles and waited in line in hopes of picking one up. If Matthew taught us anything, it's that as Floridians; we should always be prepared. Here are four benefits of a standby home generator installation:
