Been a crazy time in which we got one of those twenty-year storms here in Texas in which the temperature plummeted and the snow fell in large amounts.
It wasn’t the kind of snowfall that would make Northerners notice or most midwesterners cry but only if it fell in their cities.
Because it was bad here…very bad.
The cities aren’t prepared to deal with snow and the bad drivers are made worse in times of ice and slick roads.
We can blame the state government for bad policies and probably put some blame upon city and local authorities too, but the bulk falls with Austin.
Damn near had to go rescue the Shmata Queen and others because of power and or water issues.
It wasn’t just that it was in the teens outside, but that it was exceptionally cold inside homes that had no heat.
Homes that were wrecked or severely damaged by water from broken pipes.
Who knows if it turns into a $500 million or $2 billion in insurance claim nightmare.
It was bad and it didn’t have to be.
