By his username profile, he seems to be in Connecticut.
First, the image itself: Staged Linemen are the norm not only in Florida but anywhere a natural disaster is upcoming. There was a staging area nearby where I used to live and almost next door to Dolphin stadium and it never ceased to amaze me the size of preparations. It is not only men and trucks but lines, poles, transformers, etc.
And as for the idiot: All power companies from different states have deals among themselves to assist each other in case of natural emergencies. They are paid by FEMA or State emergency resources and paid very well because they earn every frigging penny on a miserable job. Personally, I saw them work from 6:30 and not get back to their lodging till 10:30 to 11: pm for a shower, supper and a drink before crashing in bed.
The idea that a miserable jackass from the northeast moans about his pitiful money being used to pay for their work is sadly laughable. I am sure his monthly bill would not cover one hour of work for a crew doing disaster work.
