Re: Rolling blackouts ordered for Texas - prepare your stuff
Here's part of the reason Texas has had those regulated brownouts: 50 Power Plants Went OFF Line in Texas this week

NERC to investigate why cold caused generators to go offline in Texas

Houston, February 3, 2011 — Federal regulators will investigate why about 50 electricity generating units in Texas failed during the past week's snowstorms.

Hmm. Wasn't it just as cold last winter when Dallas area got hit by a foot of snow and we had several nights of low teens all the way to greater Houston? Nothing happened. I wonder what really went on this time.

Why is it that when someone tells you that there’s billions of stars in the universe, you believe them. But if they tell you there’s wet paint somewhere you have to touch it?

Re: Rolling blackouts ordered for Texas - prepare your stuff
this doesn't make any sense to me.. i could be a moran, too but if you can supply power to everywhere, and power goes out for this and that town, why do you need to shut it off for other towns and play Christmas lights with the state's power grid? If power is DOWN then you don't need to re-direct it to places which cannot even USE the power!

I'm a Txn and I'm still trying to wrap my head around how & WHY would you use electricity to cook a steak. With flavorful mesquite trees growing like weeds, pit BBQ etc they never use electricity.

Re: Rolling blackouts ordered for Texas - prepare your stuff
The rolling blackouts in Texas are causing a state emergency in New Mexico (literally, declared by the Governor).

New Mexico has run out of natural gas and the increased draw on available electricity is causing loss of electric power in some areas.

Complicating matters significantly is the fact that the weather in New Mexico riht now is extremely cold. The temperature was considerably below zero in many places last evening. Tonight the temperature across New Mexico is forecasted to be in single digits.

Many, many people in New Mexico are scrambling right now trying to figure out how to keep their families warm enough over night.

Re: Rolling blackouts ordered for Texas - prepare your stuff
well the thing is, they said there were frozen pipes at some of their facilities, but the rolling black outs
started BEFORE THE STORM - so there was NO FROZEN PIPES then,so Im saying its conseriving energy due to PEAK OIL
and besides Im allergic to BULL SHIT!
They are conserving energy period and trying to save money cause they know the upcoming oil crisis is REAL!
I think we are in big trouble!

The rolling blackouts now being implemented in Texas and across the country as record cold weather grips the United States are a direct consequence of the Obama administration’s agenda to lay siege to the coal industry, launch a takeover of infrastructure under the contrived global warming scam, and help usher in the post-industrial collapse of America.wtf

Yes, I agree that we should be more prepared. It just isnt that we are whining about the power going out... I think it is more that we are trying to figure out why our state breaks down with just a little bit of snow. It is pitiful! Many of us feel like the power is being manipulated (like Enron) to make money or things like that..... or maybe that the people that run the power companies are incompetent!

But, yes, you are right..... we need to depend on ourselves. More and more I am realizing that we are on our own and anyone in power is just trying to keep from getting fired (can't let go of those benefits!)
