Hang in there Texas folks. Even if you did everything to prepare for this, sounds like things would still be rough. Hopefully warmer weather is around the corner.
Interesting week. I lost power for about 24 hours and water for about 2 days total. Currently everything is up but on a boil water notice obviously. Looks like there's plenty of gas. Stores are pretty empty but that should change soon now that the worst of the weather has passed. Definitely going to be some changes coming and some heads rolling over the lack of preparedness among other things.
I was thinking they should stop paying local taxes all together. As the mayor says no one is getting hand outs. Whats yours is yours.
They have never needed to even know that.
It's like tossing someone from Michigan into the desert and telling them to survive. I used to work at a resort at the base of a popular hiking mountain. There were a number of deaths every year (one died on our property a few years back) and people were airlifted off the mountain every week. They were all out of towners that didn't have enough water. Residents know how brutal 120* heat is but it's completely foreign to people out of state.
That's not to mention that things are built differently here. Our pipes aren't buried deep nor are they insulated, we don't have basement systems to buffer the cold, and houses aren't set up to deal with the cold. It's the same reason mild summer weather for the South West kills people on the East coast, things aren't built for it back there.
We got lucky. Never lost power/water and had an ample supply of food. Biggest setback for us is that the wife missed an entire week of work. So going to dip into savings to offset that.
Welcome to 2021. If it ain’t anti Trump or pro China joe the media isn’t interested
The weather people didn’t call for freezing temps? I feel like a quick,”hey let your water run” from the news might have been effective.
You're missing the point.
Quick service announcement.
If you have a break in your water pipe you should change that section out with PEX pipe, as it can freeze and thaw up to 30 times before deteriorating its integrity. Also look into Sharkbite connectors as they are the easiest connectors for unlike material pipe connections. Although expensive, it is the easiest DYI repair.
Every repair is different, hopefully this can help.
for **** sake this feels like the end times
for real tho, stay safe Peeps
**** man. what you seeing in your area? over here 2.55 ....yep it's hybrid time LOL
2.60 for regular, $3.00 for 91
$2.69 and climbing. So glad all the brain dead idiots voted to have their cost of living being cut by 25%.
2.09 before inauguration. Now 2.75 less then a month later.
I found gas today and filled up my truck at $2.11
A lot of people in my neighborhood had broken water lines despite insulating pipes and letting the faucets drip.
There’s a difference between letting the water drip and letting the water run. I grew up in Illinois where we had winters with weeks of weather at 0 degrees and below, in a home without insulated pipes and our pipes never froze or burst.
With the media playing the whole Cruz thing well and then praising aoc for the fundraiser and volunteering in Houston, get prepared for more Texans to vote that way.
Back to normal today at 60 degrees and sunny.
