  • For a change, I was very thankful for living in Minnesota during the winter. Also, I'm absolutely terrified of hurricanes. I'd rather live through the relative inconvenience of Minnesota's winters and maybe polar vortex every few years than risk losing everything due to a hurricane. Texans have had it rough for the past few years!

  • It would be nice to get some education on why Texas has fallen apart. Your in a red state which means very poor planning for problems like this and minimal government involvement in ensuring your state is prepared. Kinda like the pandemic. Your state had no plan on how to deal with this problem. Normally your videos are very educational and this story didn't have the entire story of why Texas is in trouble and why alllllllllll of this could have been prevented if it wasn't for Texas white bummer Republicans.

  • (i know i'm late to this but i just genuinely gotta get this out here ) to all the bitches saying us Texans are sensitive to cold weather, LITERALLY FUCK YOU?? Texans are not used to cold ass weather till the point where it fucking snows, almost half of us have never experienced it before and the thought of preparing for snow never crossed our minds since snow almost never happens. After I got my water and power turned back on after almost a week of sitting in the closet cold as hell with no food, I told my friends about what happened and one of them mf's said "wow Texans are so fucking sensitive to cold weather, I get cold weather all the time and you don"t see me complaining" girl. shut the fuck up. right now. please.

  • Completely empathise with the "you're all just being sensitive" rhetoric. For example, I live in the UK and our infrastructures aren't built to handle heatwaves very well at all. In the past few years (hi climate change) they have been so severe that people and animals have died from the severity of the heat which literally can't be managed as shops, schools, hospitals etc. do not have air conditioning or other decent cooling systems. So imagine this flipped for people who live in warmer climates trying to withstand two foot-falls of snow without the resources (and infrastructure) to cope with a sudden high demand on energy and food supplies. IT IS SCARY, and governments should do more to support their people .

  • I from Alaska, of course at first glance I’m like “that’s not that bad, everyone’s just overreacting and doesn’t prepare.” But really every place has there priorities within natural disasters and storms. Homes in Alaska and people aren’t built and trained regularly to deal with windstorms and tornadoes, but plenty of Central United States are regularly familiar and taught how to deal with that. I always joked that Alaska always has school even at -40 degrees Fahrenheit, but I regularly missed school growing up when it got too warm outside and it would rain, the water would freeze the next day and you could ice skate on the roads but no one could leave the house safely. Power outages would occur and serious car accidents would happen cause people still had to get to work somehow. Texas is suffering from an awful nature disaster, people are suffering. You do not make people “pay”for trying to survive. I hold that expectation for everyone. Keep people safe and fortify and support them there should be “business and usually“ in a situation like this.

  • my power was out for a week and no one of authority even knew lmao. then some people tried to fix it but it didnt work so they just gave up.

  • I live near Houston and I’m also in a rural area so we have a water well. When the power was out we weren’t able to have water. I also got really cold and wet from being outside in the snow and didn’t really have a way to warm up afterwards. Fortunately my family did not have any pipes burst but I know a lot of people who did. Plus, no internet! Lol 😂

  • Ok, so the people from the North are pissing me off. I am born and raised in Michigan. During the time Texas was getting this snow, we got over 8 inches. The difference? We have salt trucks. We have plow trucks. Going out driving before these trucks come through is dangerous and scary because too many people CANNOT DRIVE IN IT. Even here, in Michigan. On top of that, their infrastructure failed, and i saw people making fun of that too....like these people from Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, somehow forgot the 2019 polar vortex, where our infrastructure failed because it was -20 to -50 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Then, during that mess, a gas facility in Michigan caught on fire and we either had no heat at all, or we did but because there was a shortage due to the fire and so many houses had no heat, we were asked to keep our thermostat no higher than 63 degrees. People died. People were outraged and panicking. Articles about our failing infrastructure and millions of people spanning multiple states losing power and heat and dying, were all over (google polar vortex january 2019 infrastructure crisis or Michigan state of emergency) Yet all these people forgot about that and kept talking horribly about Texans being wimps. Absurd. My cousin lived in Michigan her entire life, moved to Texas two weeks before this happened and she was texting me about how insanely messed up things were.

  • As a person where I am from, it gets freezing and shoveling is something I’m always used to. But I’ve experienced this so much before. If I lived somewhere and Florida and moved to mass and haven’t lived here my whole life, it would be terrible in winters. Letting people know some tricks, double up on socks it helps so much. Put your gloves on before putting your coat on so your wrists don’t get cold. Wearing a mask will help with the cold on your face. Pants that are baggy or like pajama pants help a lot with the cold. Hoods help conserve heat. If you have a blanket and it’s freezing, put your head under your blanket your breathe warms it up. Try to always be cautious on that type of snow walk slowly and carefully, keep your hands out of your pockets if you are walking on ice to protect yourself. I would also invest in like 5 dollar hand warmers I don’t know the brand but they normally have an orange box they come in. Over time they become very warm, my dad wears them when he hunts in the winter. North face jackets are very very warm for me, jackets with down feathers in side of them are very warm too. If you cold hats help even inside or masks inside so your breathe tries to warm up your face. Obviously try to put salt on your driveway it can help a lot with the ice. Have dirt driveways help too. If you have a glass stove and are out of power, pasta is your best friend. Taking lamp shades and putting them over candles (obviously very carefully and safely) or headlamps help illuminate the room. If you can’t putting head lamps somewhere up high or on a fan blade can help. Try to keep your fridge door shut unless you have to get something it helps preserve the cold. Now you guys didn’t really get a warning but if you have your power and have running water. Fill up your bathtubs, sinks etc. fill up buckets of water with your hoses as much as you can and keep the buckets inside with like a blanket over them to prevent from freezing. If you have a relative that has power try to get water from them (obviously safely cuz of covid) or try and live with them for the moment. If you don’t have running water take. Boiling snow is a good thing for water, ALWAYS boil it snow can have toxic things in it and try to drink it from a water purifyer or put it in your brita filter or something. Try to take the snow off railings and fences try to avoid taking off the ground (if you can’t that’s fine) and always try not to take the part of the snow that touched the surface keep a thing layer. If you have an electric stove top some military food packages use a controlled flame to heat up food if you can’t buy those try to use a controlled candle over a metal pot or pan and keep it away from flamible objects. For going to the bathroom, even tho it’s gross if you pee don’t flush your toilet, if you poop flush it but if you don’t have water in your toilet, trash bags or plastic bags in the toilet and when your finished take it out, tie it up and place it somewhere outside, make sure it can’t fly away the last thing somebody outside would want is a bag of human waste. Please don’t think these tips will save your life, they may not work for you always have a backup, stay safe all of you sending prayers from Massachusetts 🙏

  • Practically the entire city of Pflugerville (just north of Austin) lost water last week, and most of us lost power too. The temperatures here got down into the single digits. Pretty sure the last time that happened was in the 80s. My place was without power or water for 3 full days; thank God we had the foresight to fill up every possible container with water ahead of time, otherwise we would've been in really bad shape. We still ended up having to boil snow and ice from outside towards the end of it (I've never been more grateful for gas stoves in my life). Even after getting water back, we stayed on a boil water notice until 2 days ago. A lot of the buildings in my brother's apartment complex had to evacuate because of burst pipes - not his, thankfully, but he spent days with everything packed and ready to run at any moment while seeing water pour off of other people's balconies. He's still exhausted. There was a pileup of over 100 cars on a major road near here the first day this all started. We're pretty lucky in that we got through it without any lasting damage, but a lot of people didn't. "Unprepared" is honestly an understatement; every aspect of this was just so horribly mismanaged. Oh, and of course one week later we had a record high temperature for this time of year. What even.

  • Texas just broke for a few days. It's like Texas had a manual reboot. Luckily I was in Colorado before I moved to Texas so I'm used to the snow. But the fact they took away power for over 30 hours was horrid. My pets and family were freezing. We don't have a car or anything to go anywhere. They gave us power for 15 minutes then took it away for another 4-5 hours before we finally got it back. My family didn't have power for over 30 hours. All stores in the area were shut down. We had people in the neighborhood driving around to find firewood to give out to people in the neighborhood who weren't able to get anything.

You'd think that someone somewhere would have said; "Hey man but what if..?" and actually had someone else LISTEN?? Like I'm not laughing at all.

  • That ice that you are experiencing is called black ice. ( that’s what we call it in Canada where I am from). It is ice that you can’t see. However Canadians that come from Ottawa and Alberta and other places that have a lot of snow know how to find and see it. Honestly Texas needs to get a bunch of salt and dirt to help with all the ice and snow but with COVID-19 it’s hard to do what needs to be done with transport and like you said Texas doesn’t have the materials to deal with the storm ( like extremely large snow plow trucks like the ones in Canada). I wish Canada could send you all our snow stuff as well as many of our citizens to help. But as a Person I am so sorry for you guys having to go through this and I wish I could travel to the US to help out but nobody can do that because of COVID which is so shitty. I am so sorry about what is going on in Texas.

  • I spent most of my childhood in west Texas, but I now live in Ontario, Canada. The amount of people I've had to educate to be like "no, we didn't have SNOW PLOWS. Trying to explain to Canadians that they don't get the salt & cat litter tricks we all know for if your car gets stuck. I never had winter coats or boots or anything. We had one small grate in the ground for heating & it would heat the hallway & that's basically it. They don't have the necessary heating & outerwear & what not... AND THAT'S ASSUMING THAT THEY HAVE THE POWER TO USE IT ALL. This isn't one of those moments that northerners can joke about how wussy southerners are about the cold. I have tons of those moments (like my Dallas grandparents bringing parkas to sit through my outdoor MAY wedding ceremony in 2019, I will tease them about that forever.).

  • As a Canadian I looked at this and I am like oh yeah that seems normal weather wise since we are use to it but thinking about it more I feel bad that especially in area like Texas you don't get snow and don't know how to deal with it. So I can see people suffering from it. In a place like Canada or certian areas in the states that do get snow they know they need to have winter gear, winter tires. We know that if a winter storm is coming to stock up or to even have candles just in case power goes out. This is something we would think of, but in places that are not use to it they would not think of having these essential. It is not something that should be assumed of. You see the difference here. WE ARE READY, PREPARED THEY ARE NOT. So yeah they have ever right to freak out.

  • I'm in Oklahoma and it was -15 at the coldest point in my neighborhood last week. Never seen anything like it before. My partner and I lost power for an hour, but that was it. We were asked to keep our thermostats down below 68 degrees for several days. That really didn't affect us because I normally keep the thermostat set to 65 in the winter anyway. They were also asking us to conserve in every other way. Don't do laundry, don't wash the dishes, don't leave the TV on, unplug unused devices and chargers, etc. Funny enough, though, the Oklahoma City Thunder still played. The team sucks this year so I don't know why they just _had_ to play, but here we are. Would have been hilariously petty if the power company cut the power during the game. I can't wash my dishes or my clothes, but anything so the team can still play basketball. I guess ball really is life.

  • I live on the coast of NC, where it rarely snows, but when it does our entire city shuts down. This is not an example of people “not being able to handle the cold,” as Tim Boyd would suggest, but rather, the cities who don’t experience snow often do not have the resources to manage it. My parents grew up in DC where snow plows are readily available to clear the roads. Here, we don’t have those. Everything is shut down because roads are too Icey for us to drive on (we’re not used to it). We have lots of trees, that would normally be fine, but in the snow, the extra weight on the branches causes them to snap off and fall into the roads, onto houses, and unfortunately PEOPLE. It hasn’t snowed here in a while, but the last time it did, our power went out for a week. Luckily, I have a fireplace, so we would sleep by it at night to keep warm. My heart goes out to all the people dealing with this Texas rn. ❤️ I empathize, and understand completely.

  • Things are much better, weather-wise, around here now, but man was that an eye-opening experience. A reminder that we don't have snow plows or salt/sand trucks. Many of us don't own jackets thicker than a hoodie because it's unusual for our winters to dip below 30F, and even that's usually only a few weeks of the winter. Our privatized power systems suck.

  • A quick tip from a Minnesotan: LAYERS WORK WONDERS!!! Putting on multiple layers of pants, socks, shirts, etc really helps (also if you don't have gloves, a last-resort option is to put socks on your hands. I know it looks stupid but it at least works more than if you had nothing at all!) Also, if you by any chance have an oil or kerosene heater, nows the time to use that!! If you don't have that (the more likely circumstance), grab all the blankets you can and wrap yourself into a burrito (did this when the power went out one time in a blizzard!) While people up here deal with this on a yearly basis, we are prepared BECAUSE it happens so often. I'm not much of a person who prays, but I'm definitely praying for everyone in Texas!!! (Also for anyone who says "wHy WeReNt TeXaNs PrEpArEd???" If you lived in the Midwest, would you make sure your house is built for a hurricane or an earthquake? Would you make a safety kit for that?? No? I rest my case.)

  • Quick tips for all those who probably have no reading sheets. Me and my family had to do this when art water heater and heater stopped working when winter. If you happen to have any running water at all, if you spoke still happens to be able to turn on, put the biggest pot you have on the stove full of water, turn on every single burner and let them run. Obviously pay attention to it. But let the burners burn and set the pot of water directly in the middle of the stove. Directly in the middle in between every single burner. The heat from the stove as well as to steam from the pot when it starts to boil will help the heat up the water a lot faster then just turning on a few burners are all the burners. your pipes may or may not be billed for the winter time, but if again if you still have running water do what you can to make sure they don't freeze. Another tip we do and still do right now. Let the water run in all of your faucets. Just have to be fully running, but maybe at the same time maybe it'll help. All of the kinetic energy from the y direction and whatever it pump is being pumped by it's going to create enough heat to keep it from being frozen. Obviously still going to be cold water if you drink it. but it's not hopefully going to be anywhere near freezing temperatures. Let that bitch run. neither an option. I don't know what to tell you then. As you can with extra layers of Clothes and coats and if you still need it, throw cover over you after that. if you guys manage to find any means of building heat up in the house and do so. Even if it's literally just run your gaming PC for a while your Xbox till it gets hot. This sounds so freaking ridiculous, trust me if you're stuck in a place that's cold and has no heater that should help. That shit release heat. How's the bright side you don't have to worry about whatever it is you're doing on your console or PC won't overheat. It's too cold in the room for that shit. But unfortunately you may have to turn it on it just to help build up the heat. Have no electricity, can't help you there chief. that's the only thing we ever manage to keep on even when our pipes we're almost damn you're Frozen.

    • So anybody who's thinking about using their car, you talking about sitting inside your car to blasting the heater that's cool. If you want to use the muffler, you're a fucking idiot why would you even think that's okay? What do you just lack common sense? Ask for those using grills. Make sure you at least have some sort of ventilation to release the smoke. In carbon monoxide. Or is it dioxide. Which one does coal release again?

  • I would say if you come to Chicago that ain't shit, and to be honest it ain't shitt compared to what we get in Chicago. But to be fair, at least our city is built for possible Winters. And yours is not and then I can understand how that much snow could be a big fucking issue with the house that's not built for winter at all. Never mind the possibility of lacking a proper heater. Still though, be lucky you in Chicago.
