I know all of you that live in the North
and the East simply do not understand how
the few inches of snow and ice we have,
can cripple the entire state of Texas,
but this winter storm brought one digit temperatures.
Our power supply apparently had not done
their due diligence in upgrading
the power equipment to handle such frigid temps.
It is a dire situation....ice on the roads which
caused a horrific 100 car wreck near downtown Fort Worth,
grocery stores closed or very low on stock, restaurants closed,
broken pipes and homes with flooding....
our youngest in Austin has been without power or water
all week and has had to sit in his car for a few minutes of heat.
His power was restored late Thursday night thank goodness,
but Austin has no water......out state capital!
We had little power all week, but are now
going on 24 hours of power!
The greenbelt look during our winter storm 2021....
be able to prepare a hot meal for our dinner....
then we would lose power for the entire evening....
we wrapped ourselves in blankets and quilts day and night....
uncommon to see tracks in the snow....
yes, I worry about them and how they survive in weather this cold.....
effort to keep equipment wrapped with blankets and tarps
and pumps going to prevent damage.....
and just talking....about everyone struggling and
needing warmth, a hot meal and a safe place to spend the night....
hopefully, we are rounding the corner and
will be blessed with some sunshine this coming week!
