Dear Great State of Texas,
I'm sure that there are other states right now where the entire temperature across the whole place is below freezing. But I'm pretty sure THOSE states aren't suffering state wide power outages in major cities. THEIR grids can handle everybody running their heaters.
So we get fifteen minutes of power, then forty five minutes of no power, because you can't handle everybody being cold. The result, of course, is that we can't make ourselves food. We can't keep warm. We don't even have light.
Yes, I have to say that you do, indeed, fail at life.
Fix the fucking problem. I'm freezing. I am hungry. I want something warm in my stomach. I can't feel my toes. Choo Choo will no come from under the covers. I can't even read properly because it's overcast outside and I don't have any light with which to read. So what do I do with myself?
I wait for the power to come back on so I can write this.
Texas, you fucking suck.
It's so great that all of the trouble making, law breaking, red neck, inbred morons down in Georgetown have power. Small towns, it seem, are doing just fine. But as for the sophisticated, free spirited, loving and educated, music creating artists of the Greater Austin area...we get to freeze and starve.
For the love of God, the fucking traffic lights aren't even working. Do you know how many times today I've heard horns blaring and tires screeching because the traffic lights are out and I happen to live a ten minute walk from the most dangerous intersection in the entire city? (By your own research, too! I'm not just saying it to say it!) Lots of people are going to be hurt or killed today because you didn't set up the system to handle people using their heaters.
Heaters in winter. Who the fuck would have thought Texans would want to use their heaters in winter.
Fix the fucking problem, damn it.
PS. I am really pissed off at you right now. REALLY pissed off. I may never forgive you for this. I may just decide to move to Canada.
