WHAT?!!! They didn't pick up the toilet paper? How do they expect to survive without it.So how’s the weather wherever you are? I live in the DFW area and we have lots of ice on the roads, schools are closed and I’ve been stuck at home today. We get a cold snap like this rarely but when it happens people here act like it’s Armageddon.
The grocery stores yesterday were full of grandpas and soccer moms acting like they needed 5 cases of water and every soup can in sight to survive this. It’s hilarious.
Right!!! I did notice in the store the other day how many people were buying the mega-sized TP packages. You know like 24 rolls. I swear a ton of people in Texas think a cold snap means there will never, ever be another roll of TP, soup can or bottled water on the grocery store shelves. It’s amazing.WHAT?!!! They didn't pick up the toilet paper? How do they expect to survive without it.
Yeah, it's unusual to have temps over 100 here, but not as rare as real Winter down there. I personally don't mind the high temps, especially after days like tomorrow, when the wind chill is supposed to be -5 to -30.I don’t know- maybe the folks up north have moments like this when it gets above 100 degrees. Having a 100+ degree day in the summer in Texas is probably a normal Tuesday, lol.
Its 2023 and we still have places without the essentials available all the time? Makes my blood boil. That's why I laugh at making everything electric in the North East. Just in general, nothing major, there's going to be a lot of cold and snow. Always. I would not want to get stuck in a jam on the side of the road or home without a little caveman equipment. Fire.We dodged an icy bullet with this storm in the Hill Country but my son, 35 miles from here in Austin, has trees down and they've been without power since yesterday afternoon and Austin Energy is going to catch a lot more heat off this storm. And they didn't reschedule their alert/reporting system's planned maintenance of going dark when they knew this was coming. I gotta say, for an energy state, this is one stupid state and just sets themselves up to be ridiculed.
I ventured forth to my local HEB this morning and the carnage was complete, down to all of the eggs gone except for the ones broken in the coolers, they must have been fighting over them but the damned things are expensive. They should not have opened the doors in the state that store was in, I would be embarrassed, it looked liked it has been looted in the produce and cooler section. LOL, there was not a potato in the store. Did these idiots think we were headed to the Great Potato Famine because of some sleet?
We did have 7 deaths caused by this but they were all traffic related, not like the last winter storm when 200 people died and most of them in their homes with no power.
I'm a truck driver and an ex-bouncer, and I grew up in North Jersey in a semi white trash family...I can train him in the proper usage and annunciation, or "art" of cussing, for the right price.As a former middle school principal, I have heard many a 13 year old misappropriate some dang good curse words. Garrett reminded me of those awkward little teens. They at least had an excuse,
