Just read Atlas Shrugged and shoot your guns at the cold weather, Texans.

Hey, what's a few less Texicans? They are only going to make more, right? I mean, that was the plan last year, right?

Has Ted Cruz booked his Cabo flight yet?

"We are ready for this storm...  TO BREAK YOU!"

Apropos of nothing, I just bought a power station on Amazon.

Won't keep me warm if the power goes out, but at least I can keep my phone charged and run my cpap machine.

As though it's an accomplishment of one of the richest states in the richest country in the world is able to survive a cold spell. Republicans love to set the bar as low as possible and they still frequently fail to surpass it.

So, you could say we about to witness a load shedding Oncor?

It's like the Animal House wall, there are always some extra words.

"I guarantee the lights will stay on   for rich people"

We cheeseheads are inoculated against a Kaaron Rodgers supurb owl appearance. Im ok with that.

Well shiat, I wasn't really that worried about it until Abbott said it will be ok

He meant the lights in his home.

Well, we can lightheartedly hope; there ain't been snow yet

Texas is full of morans.

/ Nuff said.

He's technically right. The grid, which has had no upgrades since last years failure, will be fine. I just looked at the forecast and in Houston there will be just two light overnight freezes. There should be no issues with electrical distribution. Last February when Cancun Cruz bravely ran away, daytime highs were in the 20's for three days.

Feel like this country just gets tested over and over and instead of studying for the next one we just embrace failure
 
2022-02-01 10:39:29 PM  
Even if the power does stay on, how much will it cost?

I know it's unbelievable, but not everyone in Texas is a MAGA-hat wearing moron, any more than everyone in Vermont loves them some socialism.  I Cruz et al are bad for this state and bad for the country and there are A LOT of Texans who agree with me.  Take a look at the county -by-county election results.  Not simply who won the county by what percentage.  Texas now is where California was in the 1970s.  Just wait...it'll flip eventually if not exactly soon.

I'm gonna go to the bougie grocery store this afternoon. I'm curious how busy it will be, and how many of the things I just want, won't be available.
