    And almost all of it was self-inflicted by their elected officials! They had a similar incident in 2011 and said they'd fix it so it wouldn't happen again, except it's worse this time, much worse. Instead they're trying to blame it on AOC, the Green New Deal (which hasn't even been implemented yet) and green energy. It's funny how wind turbines run just fine in Antarctica, Canada, Alaska, Norway and all over the world where weather is much worse with no problems but in Texas they can't seem to figure it out.



    They wanted to be independent and they are, so now they're literally dying from that energy independence.
    I live in a neighboring state and 25 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. We have exactly the same weather as them and it got down to 14 degrees Tuesday morning with several inches of snow and ice and it still hasn't all melted yet.


    We had a power outage of 5 hours on Tuesday so our electric supplier could save their distribution substations from going down, our water pressure is very low due to people running water to keep pipes from freezing. So, we see very clearly how Texas officials really mismanaged their systems and their constituents are suffering from it. Meanwhile neighboring states are a little cold but otherwise fine.

        Kudos for starting this igrow1

        I was thinking of it when I signed on tonight and was still trying to figure out how to word it, go about it.

        That is some serious JuJu over there in Texas! Yup! My jaw is dropping... wrt infrastructure failure. At the end though, it is the citizens that have to suffer from their incompetence/corruption. Positive vibes being sent.

        but be prepared for the worst.

              What a lot of people don't realize is how cold it actually gets down here on the Gulf Coast. 33F. is not even that cold down here, almost every year we have a cold spell in the mid to upper 20's. The coldest I remember here was about 40 years ago when we went below freezing on Thursday evening and stayed below freezing until the next Tuesday afternoon. I don't remember which night was which but one night was 10F and the other was 11F.

                you're right, was not aware that cold shot down so far
                lot of failure points seem to have happened here
                literally a perfect storm?

                    They have 2 more Really Cold (lows in the Teens) nights before the weather breaks and temperatures return to above freezing. No fun being Cold in the Dark. I know we have Brothers and Sisters who can't do a thing to help their Freezing Plants. My heart goes out to everyone there.

                    Texans are Good People who help their neighbors, I expect we'll hear a lot of stories about folks banding together to help one another.

                      Lots of plants and trees are going to be dying I'd think, south coast, RGV? Big orange grove around McAllen.
