    Arkansas can afford it.

    (shrugs)

    While it appears that Arkansas has done a better job of clearing roads than Texas, it’s important to note that the above-displayed video and photograph capture one moment in time. Texarkana Gazette reported that while this viral picture truly does show a half-cleared, half-covered road, both sides of this road were plowed shortly after this picture was taken.

    Let's not let facts get in the way of a good story though.

    If Texas purchases a lot of snow equipment now, 10 years from now it will be basically obsolete. We should wait for 9 years, then buy it.

    I'll be fine with getting on the interstate grids and winterizing power generation in the state.

    It's time.

    Don't let that deter you in your quest to "gotheem" though. You'll eventually stumble upon something if you keep posting enough random .

    How's that water delivery going? Cruz has already delivered more water than you.

    Anyone who posts as much or as hastily as you and I do is going to make mistakes. I didn't vet the tweet, but that hardly undermines the need for more investment in winterization in Texas.

    Sorry about the bad tweet.

    Rolling blackouts when it gets a little cold. Had rolling blackouts in 2011 too.

    When you share takes from 3rd parties and offer no comment of your own (like Boutons, ducks and Winehole23), you are basically using that as your voice.

    One side of this street is Texarkana, Arkansas.

    The other side is Texarkana, Texas.

    "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."

    There is a leadership failure in Texas...

    This is what was in the tweet.

    I showed you that the image was misleading thus the conclusion based on the image is misleading.

    It is. Thanks for sharing. And once again, the lack of preparedness for an emergency situation (despite this one was telegraphed well in advance) in the name of muh free market, ends up in avoidable deaths.

    I know you're desperate to change the topic, but the whole point of posting the Texasarkana pic was to show the difference between Texas and neighboring states with regard to winter preparedness.

    Texas underinvested and got caught short of capacity for a foreseeable weather event.

    My example was bad, the difference is real. There was no deception intended and as to the major point -- that Texas has underinvested winterizing its grid -- no one was misled by the bad tweet.

    45 gigawatts offline
    18 gigawatts from renewable sources

    40% -- disproportionately high

    Still, we need the infrastructure improvements regardless of source.

    How much of any of it was weatherized, Karrin?

    Also post your source if you're not afraid.

    The uneducated opinions flow freely here

    Wind turbines up north get cold weather packages, obviously not for free else they'd all have it regardless. How many Texans own a snow plow attachment for their trucks? Not many, but up North a lot of citizens have the equivalent of cold weather packages on their vehicles. They have block warmers, heaters that don't rely on engine temp to produce heat, high idle adjustments, power converters in their vehicles, snow plow packages, etc... They have snow shovels in their garages. They have basements to keep their water pipes from freezing and they can actually get to the pipes to insulate them and/or heat their basement with fuel oil. Many have emergency power in the form of generators. Homes are build and insulated for those conditions. People prepare for the environment they live in, not the once in a lifetime anomaly that could possibly occur. I don't own a snow plow or a snow shovel. , I don't own an ice scraper. Every car I rent north of the frost line has an ice scraper inside. Try getting that in Florida.

    So if Texas would winter proof all their buildings, residences, power plants and solar/wind systems, they'd be prepared for these once in a lifetime events. Notably I also don't have a bomb shelter.

    We discussed all this 4 days ago. Some are just now catching on. You have to wonder how they function without constant supervision and hive handholding.
