I’ve also heard of problems with natural gas. I’m in a new build, so it’s pretty well insulated. But there are some old homes in parts of Austin. I can only imagine the temperature drop in a 70-90 year old pier and beam home, over 3-4 hours. The power is is being regulated due to the frozen Nat gas pumping stations on the plains. Same thing happened in 2011. Entire cities in NM were shut off(no heat) during a colder event. A lot of your electricity comes from Nat gas. https://www.zerohedge.com/commodities/grid-chaos-2-million-texans-without-power-rolling-blackout-begin Edited February 15, 2021 by jwitt Addition/link 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
