Weather check............

I'm in iowa and yesterday we had a low of -28 with a -40 wind-chill. I forget what the hi was but it was still stupid cold
What is the crazy part is last month in January there were a few days that it was nice and I stayed outside with my dogs for hours in shorts and a sleeveless shirt and watched the 7 ft drifts in the back melt a little bit lol

And AOC is still runnin' her brain-dead piehole pushing her goofball green agenda. What a colossal moron.

I just keep going back to same thing. Why do we all have heat pumps down here in Texas? Our winters are too harsh, when you have this many people all having to go to emergency strip heat it creates a load that can’t be handled, anywhere. You guys up north go through the same winters, but no problem for the electrical generation grid because the only electrical load is an electrical motor turning a squirrel cage to move air. It’s not rocket science to figure this out. It’s simple math.
After 4 days in the same clothes it sure was nice to eat real food and take a hot shower. I’m not a fan of Texas anymore, and yeah I’d get the heck out if I could talk the wife into it.

edit; yeah I do realize there are some gas heaters down here, but not enough. It’s just corruption, the power companies make bucoo bucks off electrical resistance heating, so that’s why it’s nearly impossible get anything else in new construction.

32* here in Anchorage, Alaska today! I truly feel bad for people who don't know how to handle cold, snow & ice and those with no power. Stay safe everyone.

When I used to golf, we'd try to play in every month of the year. That happened only once.

In Austin Texas I went thru periods of no electricity, no cable, no phone land line and no DSL at one time or another. We also had very low water pressure for a while. Everything is good now..and things are thawing out some.

Mostly Cloudy

This is my street. My House is about 1/2 mile west of where the picture was taken

FWIW before they built that fucking school there that land was a small parking lot and play field/park. I had the same view as that road shot from my courtyard and front windows only better because I am up the hill a bit more and up higher.

Reporting from Abilene TX again. The wife and I and two cats made it through this. Had to burn a custom walnut and oak pool table that Dad and I made when I was 16. It was in storage (disassembled) when the power came back on we were down to 1 walnut leg and a walnut blind and rails. Thank God for Kentucky hardwoods! The brothers want to resurrect it.
