Insulation works both ways. If the houses were more energy efficient instead of cheaply built they would heat and cool better.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79210164


Cheaply built? LMAO

The house I'm in was built in 1935 with double walled long leaf pine from an 1880s school house. Many houses this age and construction across the state still standing.

How long do you expect your house to last? 90 years?

Cities across Texas are preparing for widespread outages in cell phone and water services as the state continues to be pounded by a ferocious winter storm, which has already left millions without electricity.
Ravaged by the first storm on Sunday night, Texas’ power grid has taken a beating over the last 24 hours, leading to rolling blackouts across the state for around 4.3 million residents as officials rush to repair ailing infrastructure. The power outages have set off a cascade of other problems, knocking some water treatment plants and cell phone networks offline.

Cell towers are not getting turned off though which makes this a purposeful outage. DARK WINTER!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74840632


ERCOT in TX is going to have to answer a TON of questions. We pay through the damn nose for power here, so WTF is all the money from that AND FEDERAL grants from all of the natural disasters that TX has had in the last 5 years. ERCOT was given SHIT TONS of money to harden the grid after each one of those to rebuild and harden the grid.

For example, the load on the grid right now is no more than what happens in the summer. AC in TX blows 24x7 in the summer, especially between July and Sept creating a much heavier load than right now. Most furnaces in TX use gas, not electric to run them like AC.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79529057


In the summer, there wouldn’t be the loss of wind turbines due to freezing or loss of solar due to stormy skies. The loss of renewables in the winter months shows the weakness; a system that relies on renewables will experience supply collapse in certain weather conditions.

Apparently, the grid in Texas was deregulated in 1935 in texas so a small number of wealthy individuals could make money.

Lots of people are suspicious about this cold snap

They are wondering if it is weather mod. All I have to say in reply is DARK WINTER. We were promised one, and now, in many places, the LIGHTS ARE OUT. And this never happened before. Gosh, how did Biden know beforehand???

REPEAT: Witness the results of vote fraud. REPEAT: Witness the results of vote fraud. REPEAT: Witness the results of vote fraud. REPEAT: Witness the results of vote fraud. Can you see them yet?

When the people stealing elections want your nation destroyed and HATE YOUR GUTS, vote fraud REALLY MATTERS. Inaction after such a theft is a ticket to doom.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74840632


Most cell sites have generator power that will probably keep them going for a good week or two, as long as the data umbilical doesn't loose service. Especially in a hurricane prone area, by law in florida cell sites and other places like grocery stores have generator backup power.
