When you said off-the-grid I was thinking like that term usually comes to mean these days, she had her own way of supplying the necessary elements of
modern life in a city. I was a bit surprised to see she figured she could live without the basics of modern code and regulation by just saying she
didn't need running water, electricity, sewage or those other little things that make city life with neighbors.....tolerable.
Heck, there are rural areas all over the nation one can go live like it's 1899, but Coral Gables or MOST cities? Aren't it...
For what it's worth...my little city in Missouri said the same thing to everyone following the 07 Ice Storm. It really wasn't necessary, since no
one here was trying to just 'do without' the bare basics of service and running water ...but it was made clear toward the end? No Power-No Water =
No Residency. It's a public health and safety thing and it was here.
It's amazing some folks figure they can do it their way, and laws...regulations..codes..and decency toward those around them ( codes exist for a good
reason ) just don't apply because they don't think it should. Well... She'll be fighting this one from a homeless shelter by the look of it, as
I'm betting if we looked into city code enforcement for Coral Gables.....as she obviously didn't bother with?...we'll find extended camping inside
a residence isn't acceptable.
