BOCA RATON, FL ( — We’ve been on the receiving end of some sort of (seemingly) orchestrated campaign calling us out for our post a few days ago suggesting that anyone who only own a Tesla is going to find it difficult to evacuate. From South Palm Beach County, you’ll make it roughly as far as Gainesville before you’ll find only a few charging stations on the Turnpike (or 75 after the Turnpike is done being the Turnpike). If hundreds of Tesla drivers need 30 minutes to an hour to charge their electric shiny automobile, it stands to reason there is going to be a problem.

And that’s assuming there’s electricity.

To the apparently California-based readers who have a problem with this logic, we suggest the following:

  1. See if you can trade-in your Tesla for a life.
  2. Understand that in Florida, Hurricanes and the loss of power are real issues. Gas can be delivered. Electricity can not. Folks routinely lose power for days as the result of a major storm.
  3. Find something better to do with yourself than trying to add value to your Tesla as the company’s stock is just weeks off its 52-week low.
