It's not bad if you have the basic supplies prepared ahead like a responsible adult.
2 weeks of food/water, a cheap generator, general hygienic supplies and what not. Thank goodness I don't depend on government to be any help at times like these. *rolls eyes*
A funny knee-slapper moment was when there was a "boil water warning" in some areas that didn't have power to utilize. Like how could you boil your water safely without having access to power lol (assuming you don't have gas stoves)
And I'm aware that the cold and iced roads is the normal for some of you in the northern areas, but before you pull your dick out for measuring, just be aware that alot of the homes built in Texas aren't insulation properly to withstand this degree of cold for a long period of time. Not to mention that the need to have salt/sand for the roads aside for a rare occurrence like snow is unlikely. (It's been maybe 10 years since I last saw snow here) and finally *deep exhales*... the panic buyers. Whenever something inconvenient happens, major or minor, people have the need to excessively buy anything to give them a sense of security, when they should have been somewhat prepared already if they have stored away something as basic as a 3 day supply of anything.
*gets off soapbox*
But seriously, I hope everyone is being safe out there and keeps warm. Drive carefully, and help out your friends and neighbors whenever you can with whatever you can offer. And thank you, everyone for the kind thoughts.
We're in this together as one. Isn't that right, Ted Cruz?
