    Feels like it's storming everywhere except where I'm at rn. All my friends in Texas, NYC, and Seattle had been snowed in/had power outages in the past week or two.

    Texas completely deregulated and privatized their energy utilities.

    Hey it’s not like there isn’t a global, cataclysmic event that people have been talking about for decades happening.

    when we got hit by Sandy I didn't have power for almost 10 days and there were mile long lines for gas and people fighting over it. I think Texas will make it through a few days of not wearing cowboy boots and wearing hoodies

    No power where I’m at currently. People’s pipes are messing up too. Texas was not prepared for this at all
