Thank you, Amanha! One more cold night and we are done. :thumbsup

We cooked outside when the electricity was down. Just getting water in the house today. Have had all containers filled to flush the toilets throughout this unprecedented storm. Not sure if bathroom pipes have been damaged. Water is trickling today. Everything is still frozen, but beginning to thaw.

I was asleep in the living room one night when the lights came on, I made a beeline to the kitchen to make some coffee. I can tell you that the only thing Texas knows about ice and salt is a Margarita. True that! :heeheehee

Would all those who were shut in without power and freezing were able to fly to Cancun like Ted Cruz.

He flew his girls there and flew home. Closet Democrat. :heeheehee

Did you want him to fly the helicopters to spray the wind turbines! Guess what? That isnít his job to fix the infrastructure. :smack

Doesnít matter his job. Itís the optics of him jet setting off to Cancun while his constituents are literally dying. Itís why Presidents are careful what they do when thereís a national disaster or terror attack.

We all know Ted Cruz can do nothing wrong in your eyes.

ďOpticsĒ. Love how you copied that term from the media - ad nauseam.

We need to grow up in this country. If he had a preplanned trip, he can take it. People are stupid if they think his staying here would have made the snow and ice go away.

There was a mayor who resigned and his wife got fired after he, as a citizen, asked people to grow up and take care of themselves.

We didnít need or want anyone to help up try to find a way to have warm food or drink when we were frozen in. We didnít need anyone to tell us how to get water to flush our toilets. We had to turn off our devices to save batteries so we could keep in touch with our children.

And I donít need Ted to do anything save to stay in touch with the situation wherever he is. He doesnít have to be in Houston to stay up to date while waiting.
Ranting on him because the media decided to make it an issue is also stupid and embarrassing. He worked hard to make the money he has. If others canít afford it, too bad. Stop being jealous. Grow up.

Amen! Been praying for them and all others who are dealing with the frozen tundras!! Even Mississippi was blanketed with ice and snow. Thankfully it did not reach into the southern most areas! But, it did get COLD!!

Whole chicken, quartered potatoes, quartered onions, chopped garlic, green beans, carrots in a cast iron dutch oven cooked over a campfire in the front yard. Country folk can survive. :)
