My Mom told me one of her earliest memories is having to turn the lights off every night in NYC during WWII (or perhaps the neighborhood power was cut each night, I cant recall). As a WWII buff, this still strikes me as odd because Germany had neither long-range bombers, nor aircraft carriers. Perhaps every generation of kids needs to be irrationally terrorized by something.
The blackouts were a coastal thing as U-Boats were just off shore and city lights would silhouette the shipping at night making them easy prey.

And I know that the summit hotel would be good for business but I hope they can do so in a way that is minimally disruptive to the Appalachian trail and vista
I heard talk of it being built at the base area instead of the summit. They have a ton of property east of what I like to call "Tent City"
