Here in San Antonio we go thru extreme heat more than cold. I live in a rural area in a 100+ year old farmhouse. Indoor plumbing was added. When we heard this storm was coming, we reinsulated all the pipes on the outside and took the necessary precautions inside. Had no problems. While I do agree with your temperature assessments, You have to understand that southern Texas does not have below freezing temps for several hours. We may go to below for 2-5 hours at a time, once in a while, but not for 7 days as we just went thru. Once in a lifetime event.
We have more problems with foundations cracking in the high temps in the summer. Most homeowners have soaker houses around the foundations. So you see, we deal with a different problem than you do up North.
Great quote! Winston Churchill said, " Never let a good crisis go to waste".
We were lucky that we camp a lot and had plenty of firewood. If you take a clay pot, some bricks and candles, you can make a space heater. All is good today as power came back on yesterday. Thanks for your concern.
We get a dusting of snow every few years, but this is a once in a lifetime snow. With this storm lasting for days, our city is just one big sheet of ice with some white stuff on top. In 70+ years I have never seen it this bad. Thousands were without power or water. Fires out of control because hydrants are frozen. Our idiot leaders tell us that we need to drive to a water station so they will fill our containers with water – 5 gallon limit. Then take it home and boil it before consumption. How do you do that when you have no power? Sorry to rant; tired, cold and cranky.
San Antonio 28 and snowing. Snowing in South Texas. Ain’t natural.
Cancel culture is just that. And this has lead the way for any party in power to impeach any politician. Regardless of when they served. But, then I guess you missed the sarcasm. Churchill said, " Never let a good crisis go to waste". Meaning TDS is alive and well.
I would rather go thru photo albums and share memories with loved ones rather than go where shells are stored. If you truly believe in life after death, then you know the spirit is long gone. If I want to talk to them, I have pictures and videos.
I am waiting for the House to impeach George Washington. After all, he owned slaves and thought no onw should vote but rich, white land owners. Sarcasm intended.
And Congress’ pay increased how much??? Funny how the people that can vote for their own increases have bigger increases.
Where I live the “leaders” have decided to skip the remaining elderly and vaccinate teachers and county workers first. Wonder if our Mayor realizes he is up for reelection in May?
