Unless you're outside...... :)
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

The article said statewide, does this mean that it's going to happen here in Austin TX too?

BTW, It is pretty chilly out there(and I'm a former Michigander) only 17f. Supposed to be just as cold tomorrow, with possible snow.

At least I was finished with my makeup before it went out. At work on generator now.

I have already got several calls from our local assisted living houses complaining. I cant understand why a place like that obviously needs power doesn't have a back up generator.

Actually, if it is an older one like mine, you have to get your tools out and disconnect it. No cord to pull, my last house did have a newer one, as we put it in and had the cord. This house doesn't, older.

I can't remember what year but we had an ice storm back in the 1970s when I lived in Dallas that was worse than this. It was seriously fucked weather but this is pretty bad according to the family in Dallas. Just cold here in Galveston though.

San Antonio (CPS ENERGY) is currently doing rolling blackouts for 15 min at a time. May up it to 45 minutes. Currently 10,000+ out of power at a time.


very sad cause it is really freaking cold when the heater is not on!

My dad is the head of maintenance at a local nursing facility and not only are they required to have backup generators, but there are mandated tests of them several times a month. Not sure if that's a state requirement or a facility standard though.

Near Austin @17*F here. Power went off twice here and the voltage is all over the place right now, varying from 114VAC to 124VAC.

Pisses me off to find out they're intentionally doing it. What advantage do you gain by "rolling blackouts" that last 15 minutes, then SURGE like a drunk muslim, when it comes back on? wtf

Seems like they're preparing us for the future. (on the coldest fucking day in 4 years)huffy
