    The Texan's officials were putting their nose in others states elections instead of taking care of home problems .

    I guess they weren't smart enough to know what pipes do when they freeze. Do they know how to shut their water off? I know people will say "we arent ready for this" and what not but theres also common sense.

    Oh good grief! Are people seriously trying to turn this political?! That’s gross! Texas is a state not equipped for cold weather because it never happens there, so pipes aren’t winterized like up north, roads are impassable due to no snow plows or salt trucks...no clear roads means workers can’t get out to fix power lines. This didn’t happen because Texas isn’t “green”. I’m so sick of idiots pushing agendas on everything and people blindly believing what they see online 🙄

    I blame the people if they didn't have food in the house. I blame the people if they didn't wrap their pipes. That's just it no one takes accountability for themselves or their family. And then when s*** happens they blame everybody but themselves. But asTexans we got out there and helped one another. But it's nobody's dang fault. But the person's fault that's responsible for their household

    This is full of government propoganda, the coal plants were not allowed to be turned on till it was to late because of green regulations from Dept of energy.

    Maybe this will be a lesson to those that think they can live without fossil fuels, the generators that Biden is finally sending or any generator for that matter, uses FOSSIL FUELS TO RUN...LITERALLY, FOSSIL FUELS ARE GOING TO SAVE YOUR LIVES..I am greatly disappointed that few people knew how to survive in these conditions, looking to the government to save them, what the hell is America going to do if things were worse...build fires for warmth and cooking and water, basic 101 survival skills, group together to share food, yes, the situation is tragic, but how are people going to survive in a nuclear holocaust if you can't survive this...the government can't save you now, but you can save yourselves as uncomfortable as that may be...Texas will recover...
