that ain't no pool , that's an ice skating rink !
I’m in South Carolina, 64 degrees.
I just checked, and we've warmed up quite a bit. 10F and feels like 10F. Lotsa snow coming tonight, but this is the last of it.
Then maybe we can open the pool.
It's easy to get through the weather when you have salt trucks, snow plows and energy infrastructure set up for cold weather. If you don't have those you just have to wait it out. Hope everyone gets through it.
Just came back inside from cleaning off the truck. Not that I can get down the hill, but because it's going to snow and ice again tonight and I didn't want to clean off six layers at one time. Looking forward to bicycle/motorcycle weather.
Losing power and heat when it's freezing outside sucks pretty quickly.
The power is staying on, and the water is running.
Still have to boil it.
Looking forward to the weekend, and a return to, uh, normal.
I work in a shop that repairs gas and steam turbines from all over the country and sometimes outside our country. I expect to see our Texas customers start buying the cold weather packages that we see on turbines that routinely operate in cold climates.
On another note, the home generator I installed for Hurricane season worked like a champ. Never thought it would save my bacon during a Houston winter.
BY far, this has zero to do with the issues in Texas. Their issue is energy was allowed to be deregulated. No one confers with the other, they are all an entity within and little cooperation between. A messy situation
Now if only the natural gas, coal and nuclear plants invested in cold weather measures.
Sader, family pets can perish.
can't read article unless you pay for it.
Canada truly is a workers' paradise. I can read it!
The punchline is, despite misinformation, the state’s widespread electricity failure was largely caused by freezing natural gas pipelines.
Wild couple of days here in north Houston. Escalated very quickly. Power was down about 48 hours for us, just came back early this morning. Nearly lost water pressure but not quite. Still on boil order. Hosted family/friends on and off who still don’t have power or water or both. Busted water pipes everywhere.
We have overall been fortunate and had plenty of food, water, etc. Still a miserable time piled under blankets/layers in your frigid house all day trying to keep your small kids warm.
Many of the turbine decks in Texas are exposed because they make more power that way. Housing a turbine helps in winter but robs power in the summer, so they go with the most bang for the buck and prioritize summer usage.
Philosophical change will be required to get them to spend money for the rare winter storms we see ( don’t hold your breathe on that )
81 in Tampa today ... sending warm thoughts. if that doesn't work, let your anger and jealousy keep you warm.
It was 12° here this morning. The sun is out and all is well here in Castle Rock, Colorado.
One thing that is definitely different about our cold compared to you guys up north, imagine it being right at freezing temperature but you have a couple water faucets that are barely cracked open and the wetness is reaching to your bones. Now you guys deal with a lot colder temperatures and also a lot worse wind than we do. But it’s the humidity and moisture that gets us. Also, the fact that Louisiana weather is about as steady as a teenage girl who’s hormones are just raging out of whack all the while she’s suffering from bipolar, ocd, ADHD, and terrets, all at the same time. At 2 am it’s 7 degrees, 6:30 it’s 65 and sunny then at noon it’s raining sideways and warm then just as you sneeze, your windshield wipers are frozen to your truck and there’s a ladies Yorkie that was trying to run across the road that got frozen in midair while giving birth to baby orangutans. That’s about the best description of Louisiana weather I can give you.
