You know, that's a really good point. In such situations, the sooner
you can get the basic infrastructure operational again and
transportation, electrical systems, and fuel distribution (generators
have to run on something...) in particular, the faster everything can
start coming back together. First and foremost, this means making the
place habitable again so you actually have customers to serve. So any
time spent doing something like what is related above is extremely
worth while and can only serve to facilitate future work for everyone
on the island.
