How You Can Help Texas Flood Victims

As residents of Tampa, we know all too well about the wrath of hurricanes and tropical storms, and our hearts go out to victims of Hurricane Harvey. It’s great to see some of the selfless ways volunteers from around the country are helping, like this story that shows how boat owners are rescuing residents from flood waters.

Even if you can’t get to Texas with your boat, there are many ways you can help the flood victims from right here in Florida. Here are some links to get you started.

Can Your Outdoor Lighting Withstand Florida Rain?

If you’ve had a landscape lighting system installed by someone who does not understand the importance of waterproof fixtures in Tampa, you may start to see problems. Water builds up quickly in systems not built or installed for Florida weather, and we definitely see cases where this happens. 

Here are some problems that can occur in a non-weatherproof installation.

Hosting a Summer Party? Make it a Hit With Outdoor Lighting

Whether you’re having an end-of-season celebration for your son’s baseball team, a pool party for your daughter’s sweet 16, or a backyard BBQ with some of your best buddies, you never want to send guests home just because the sun goes down. Some of the best memories are made at night, often in the glow of twinkly lights.

If you don’t have sufficient lighting on your patio or lanai for guests to see, they’ll either head home or (yikes) head into YOUR home! To keep the party going or avoid a huge crowd invading your kitchen, hire Brilliant Nights. We can design a lighting plan that fits your budget.
