...and the place is crawling with alligators. BIG freaking alligators. 15' long alligators. Billions of ducks, herons and other water birds too. Saw a flock of maybe 300 pelicans.
For a change of pace I decided to take a gig reworking the electric services on a bunch of pump/gate stations that South FL Water Management has out in the Everglades. Nice easy work, no heavy lifting, no ladders, nobody ripping off your tools or breaking into your car, no pressure.
I knew there were critters out in the glades, but I didn't realize precisely how many of them there were. The answer is LOTS.
