Nope. We don't pay any of them any mind out in these parts.

My point about Ted was that him being in Texas or Cancun has no bearing on my life whatsoever.

Re: Praying for Texas

Glad to see you cooking outside in a dutch oven Bro. E! Living in the country offers much more opportunities for survival in such a situation than living in a large city does. So many Texans were reminded of how vulnerable they are, and I think it was a good wakeup call for many of them. All of my family in TX are now looking into being better prepared, ie. stockpiling food, water, and sources of heat, and generator power, which is something we do as second nature living here in the north.

Both guys in charge of our electric grid, one from Michigan and one from California need to be booted. 👍🏻

Having two heating sources is what I would plan for. Glad we and our children have both gas and electric at our homes. First time the kids used their fireplaces this winter. Lol!

I feel for those that only have electric. That is scary.

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.

I didn't get it from the media, I have my own vocabulary that I use, thank you. More arrogant condescension from you.

It wasn't preplanned. It was to get away from the weather.

Hey, PO, you gonna tell Ted to grow up? Because even Ted said it was "a mistake" to fly to Cancun on a whim because they were without power and heat in their home for a couple days.

He was Mayor when he posted the rant on FB. He resigned after the post. While I don't disagree with what he posted, it's best he resigned.

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 can’t afford it, too bad. Stop being jealous. Grow up.
I'm not being jealous, woman. I'm in sunny and warm Arizona. I don't need/want to go to Mexico.
I didn't "rant on him." I posted a single sentence. And I would have posted the same for a Democrat because, unlike you, I'm not a partisan hack. If someone does something stupid, I'll call them out regardless of their political party. I guarantee you had this been a Democrat Senator, you would have posted criticism about it. But it's your man crush so he gets a pass from you.


BTW, here's what Ted said, "as I was heading down there, you know, I started to have second thoughts almost immediately because the crisis here in Texas, you need to be here on the ground. As much as you can do by phone and Zoom, it's not the same as being here. And so, I returned this afternoon and I'm here working to make sure that we do everything we can to get the power turned on."

May want to tell your man crush that he's wrong.
