Centerpoint says it will do rolling blackouts 15 min to more then an hour to help keep ercot overload under control.

You should have waited a little bit before using the battery backup. ... it can go fine for about an hour after that you need some heat and circulation

Eekk. What's scary is Centerpoint shows # of outages but no est time to turn on....

The map shows blackhorse ranch and towne lake not being effected. Hopefully my warehouse didn't loose power. Frag tanks.

We had 1 call in and some of my managers made it in. They said it’s driveable but you just gotta go slow and take your time.

My truck was nearly frozen solid. Could barely open the door. It was frozen. Looks like I’m staying at the hospital today.

Free the wipers before you turn them on. It could destroy the motor or make them out of alignment. Some people up here pull the wiper arms away from the windshield when car is parked outside.
