If one week of bad weather flipped the state of Texas on its back then it’s really not to hard to imagine two or three years of bad weather tipping over empires.

Happens every 400 years or so. The only difference this time is the population has gone from a few hundred million to a few billion and of course the quality of weapons.

I’m sure we’ll handle it much better this time.

400 years ago people were more likely to make sure they had food and water on hand. Far less resiliency now.

Are the groceries $800.00 or whatever a cart already? Are your groceries from that power reseller in texas? Are you blinding drunk already/still?

I am so confused. Between you not being here and Webster with the negative waves, I feel my head is going to explode.

It’s 36 degrees now. No damage at all, even to my pantry or preps.

I’ve got 3 crates of freeze dried food that I didn’t feel the need to touch either.

In all honesty, to me, besides the cool temps in the house and lack of a warm meal without a hassle, it was actually kinda FUN! It was much easier than building our cabin in East Oklahoma in August in 115 degrees, no electricity or water and installing that pink insulation and having that all over me, wearing the N-95 face hugger in that heat was NOT FUN. Give me another week of this cold instead.

Honestly.....This was actually like camping indoors. It was a good lesson to know what to have next time.

But I am sure ERCOT will be pressured into getting all the massive changes to the system to handle this better next time and up our rates 200% when in all actuality it won’t be needed for another 60 years more or less and then every improvement they did will be useless, old and rotted and mostly not maintained again.

They do need to get those windmills in West Texas winterized much better. They get that cold weather a lot.

NO BUSTED PIPES BRUTUS!! Hubby wrapped them properly. We kept faucets dripping and exposed cabinet doors open with candles to warm.

Sorry to burst yer stern lessons and finger wagging for us Texans.

We did have some millennials that had issues, since they weren’t born dumb but weren’t given any sense, common or learned.

I hear all the liberals say we need to join the federal or national system. I hope we never do, but we will improve ERCOT, because this was a much needed opening of the eyes.

Mainly because I hope we leave the union and become our own Republic.

Some of the issue we had is too many newcomers sucking on our grid. More people, illegals and new transplants, new companies. Elon and all the rest. Don’t need any more people. We need less and I am encouraging all who are pissed to leave and move to California, Virginia or Maryland.

One other thing. The biggest complaint I hear, to which I totally agree, is the rolling blackouts schedule being handle inconstantly and unfairly.

We had one 9 hour outage and then the next day a 20 hour. Some got 4 day constant outage, some got absolutely no outage ever. The there were some that had 2 hours out then 3 hours on regularly.

Some say they targeted electric use only people, some say the opposite, they targeted the gas. We are on both. Some will say if you are by the police, a hospital or fire department you don’t get any outage.

We are 6 blocks from a fire house unit. Not sure if anyone over there was out. But I do know where I live, that is the only thing people are complaining about, the sharing of outages not being equal or fair.

Hey turkeytwat! He went to go after, check on on his teenage daughter who went on a trip without his approval.

I suppose his advanced knowledge of the grid could have helped us if he stayed here and came to pat us on the back, one by one.

Are you always this dumb or do you work on it to get it to that perfection you have certainly achieved?

Well, most likely every media will have it’s own special story, told backwards, forwards, right and wrong.

But what the hell could he do?

My dad always said, if you can’t physically help or offer expert advice, then get out of the way and do something you know how to do.

A politician, which he is, can’t help our power issues. Nor can he accomplish any other feat. Look at our government for further examples.

I have 16 crates of water in my spare bedroom. Delivered by the supplier.

10 more coming next week.

How the fuck is that so hard?

And snow in 5 gallon buckets if neede. They weren’t needed, but I had it.



Lollipop lol, how about crawling way up Joe Biden’s ass and rest your dear sweet heat on the first cushy swollen polyp you can find.

Like I need a politician to tell me it’s gonna be okay and shake my hand. Like that helps.

He isn’t a electrician, a plumber or even a contractor.

Politicians are bullshit artist much like your yourself.

Run for office! Then keep running.

Julie sez "I get it now. Ted and Heidi Cruz wanted their children to be safe, to have basic sanitary services like heat and running water, to leave behind a third-world apocalyptic nightmare for a safer place. Like so many parents before them, they decided to cross the Mexican border."
