Re: Praying for Texas

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

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!

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.

This is exactly what I would have done, looks aok to me. We can get by without modern conveniences when necessary.
I grew up in Houston(south Houston, Pasedena, North Houston, Conroe area. I saw pictures of some of the beaches in Galveston covered with snow. A rarity for sure.
Texas is nice, just not those areas I grew up in. Most every state has those areas.

Re: Praying for Texas

The parts of Texas not on its ERCOT power grid appear to have weathered the freeze with few outages

After the 2011 winter freeze, El Paso Electric, on the Western Interconnect grid, spent heavily to "winterize our equipment and facilities so they could stand minus-10 degree weather for a sustained period of time," Eddie Gutierrez, an El Paso Electric spokesman,

On the other side of Texas, near the Louisiana border, the city of Beaumont also appears to have weather the storm without massive outages. Entergy, which powers Beaumont on the Eastern Interconnect grid, told KHOU it also winterized its infrastructure after the 2011 storm.

Re: Praying for Texas

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