Thriving in the Texas Winter Chaos

How are you holding up in the cold?

Thanks for asking. We’re good. Electricity has been on and off since Sunday. They turn the power on just enough so we can cook, shower, heat the house a bit, and charge cell phones. We sleep with our jackets, beanies, and a couple of blankets.

Today is a lot better though. Power is on more than in the last 3 days and the weather is better. We’re in the 20s as opposed to Monday and Tuesday’s brutal -1 weather.

Statewide, were still fucked. Dallas is still snowed in and at a stand still. All the stores are closed, there’s no Covid-19 relief, and we still can’t figure out how to startup the power plants and stabilize the grid. Winterization is a bitch.

I am so glad I grew up in the 3rd world where people are used to surviving on the edge of civilization. It’s called abilidad – look it up.

Thriving in chaos,

PS – if you tell me to suck it up because it’s colder in Canada and New England, or some other fucked up frozen tundra then fuck you. It’s not the same.

Chucky is WANTED

sino kayang sutil ang gumawa nito?

His race was given as “Other: Doll.”
