    The point is that it happens frequently enough, 4 times in the last 10 years, that they need to address the issue. And people like Crenshaw need to stop claiming it's a once in a century occurrence.

    Well, you know. Besides creating food lines and telling us those only ever happen under evil Communist regimes.
    we have food lines, but in Portland we have 15 police fuckwads guarding a single grocery store dumpster who have to throw out a fuck ton of perishable food items because they went over the FDA's limit on time not maintained at temperature because the store lost power for a few hours. When this happened in Olympia, WA and the local Safeway lost power they moved the refrigerated produce outside and sold it at like 25% price because they knew what was coming.

    It gets even worse when you realise the bit about "have to" is a lie. There's a legal exemption of liability for donated food products.

    They're destroying it because NIMBY. America is a broken country.

    pull yourselves up by your boot straps, government isn't for giving hand-outs, it's not my fault you don't have a generator or food storage in case of emergency, why should my tax dollars go to bail out their bad planning???? I thought they wanted to leave the Union, now they're seeking handouts? fucken Texan snowflakes can't handle a couple of snowflakes?

    thanks, i got it out of my system. I'll accept punishment if there is one.

    oh, also they have wind-turbines at latitudes much higher north than fucking Texas and don't seem to have problems. Maybe consider the people that installed those turbines cut costs by not installing the deicing feature because they didn't think they'd need it. shrug

    I feel bad for the actual Texans dealing with this. Not bad for any of the Texans telling everyone else that this is an acceptable price to pay for "keeping the feds outta our power grid" while they sit in their homes that still have power.

    Cruz, Abott, Perry and the lot of them need to survive a few days in their mansions without any electricity or support at all. Let's see what tune they start singing, then.

    they destroy it because if they do then you have to buy it, it's a Kroger supermarket chain they'll have new meat stocks within the week. this is purely just not wanting to see people get something for free, that they will have to come into the store and buy at full price next week when they get restocked.

    Dude, I experience months of cold weather, qq about 1-2 days of snow in freaking Texas is not only a bit silly, the place is a desert, it is a warm place, to me I see the months of cold weather replenishing water supplies, less impactful for me than to warm places (like Texas) that badly need those supplies in the summer.

    Texas should put its main focus on the impact of heat n droughts, water supply, and spend less time being hysterical that 1-2 days of snow is the end of the world. I'm pretty sure Texas will pull through just fine and its not exactly the end of the world...

    "i saw snow, im scared!"

    You'd think with global warming increased fresh water supplies would be welcome..

    It's like you're desperate to make sure that everyone knows that you don't understand a thing about the topic of climate change. This ain't how it works, yo.

    This is absolutely vile. Twenty one people have frozen to death so far and millions are without power, heat, and water in below freezing temperatures.

    And this shit doesn't wrap up in "1-2 days", sweaty; winter conditions do a *lot* of lasting damage to infrastructure that is designed to handle it. I can't imagine the plumbing costs in the weeks ahead with all the burst pipes and water mains.

    While I agree with you in principle, how are Cruz Abbot and Perry in the positions they are? 60-70% of Texans want them there.

    And of course, you already have Abbot going on Fox News lying through his teeth about green energy failing, when wind energy only makes up 7% of the power output in the state.

    Sadly, this seems the only way maybe, MAYBE to teach them some empathy.

    Probably not though. It'll just be the same old tired blaming liberals/aoc/communist/socialists, or rich jews who control space lasers.

    The only saving grace these houses have is that they're bricked on all sides. The building quality is laughable at best, horrifying at worst. They still put the electrical panels outside. In an area prone to large storms and hurricanes. Real useful guys, I love flipping my breakers back on in 100+ MPH winds.

    Narrator: "It was not, in fact, a good idea."

    I still find it kind of mystifying how you can legitimately punch a hole through many doors in more recent houses. The construction is so shoddy.

    With all of the human suffering happening. It's hard to contemplate the damage to the ecosystems not prepared for this weather.

    Well technically 55.8% of voters voted for Abbot, and only 8,343,443 people voted out of 15,249,541 eligible voters in 2018. That's 4,655,641 voters, so 30% of Texans wanted Abbot if my math is correct.

    I highly doubt that many of us Texas residents want those clowns. The real reason is gerrymandering, at some points so bad the judiciary had to slap the GOP hands for being so overtly racist, looking at you Tarrant County.

    It's not.

    But it's cheaper to build houses that way because then you don't have to route the main through the wall and can just run 3 feet of conduit from the underground line up to the panel.

    The panel, which btw, isn't in a totally waterproof NEMA enclosure but just a Type 1 where the front panel just tucks underneath the top without a full seal.

    It's truly a masterclass of cutting corners to maximize profits and lower build times of houses, future consequences be damned

    People always die in cold weather.

    That is NORMAL, while it's not fun, it's part of life. Be glad the snow is just around a few days.

    This is like complaining that old people die during summers, summers are supposed to be...what was the word...warm?..

    What do you mean cold? Put on warm clothes. Don't have any? Put on several clothes for same effect.

    The weather is nowhere near cold to be a freaking emergency.



    In a few weeks this temp visit of snow, which im used for longer periods, is gone n u have all forgotten about it.

    As for infra-structure, that is a country-wide problem of being generally stingy. As for "lasting damage" not so much, way over-blown.

    You should move to chicago, cold winters, hot summers, pot holes in the roads so big they can swallow a dump truck..

    I tried to explain that the snow is just around short while, it does have positive impacts like water supplies for a place like texas, but apparently everyone thinks judgement day is here..geez...have food supplies run out? No. Put on some warm clothes, build a snow man, which most texans usually don't get a chance to do..i mean the horror...at worst its a nuisance this short visit of 1-2 days snow.

    What do you think happens if I'd be without electricity for a few days? I put on some warm clothes, light some tea candles for added warmth, read my books but no internet, oh the misery! practically dying!!!
