This is not a picking on Tangs thread it is a no power thread. I did not mean to insult anybody. It is a general discussion where we exchange our thoughts on the matter. I am doing just that.
To many of us it felt more like a Tangs condescends towards the silly southerners who can't handle a little cold (and also insinuate that we don't understand or believe in global warming / science??) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm sorry you feel bullied but you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

Ok with global warming it is making the arctic heat up really quick. I am a thousand miles north of you. We have a lot shorter and milder winters now. This is also screwing up the jet stream. North of the jet stream is arctic air. South is warm air. Your winter conditions is probably from the jet stream being south of you which is rare because you are so far south ??? Same as the hurricanes these winter events will occur more often in the future. Believe if you want to or not. This is what science is saying. I believe it because I am seeing it first hand...... ??????
@Tangs I think you are missing the point.

RIGHT now we are in survival/recovery mode for our homes and our tanks+inhabitants. We don’t give a RATT’s REAR END about global warming and what Canada has/is doing to combat it.

And by the way PART of the reason we are in this mess is green energy equipment failure/short comings. I personally have a relative that works in/on NG fired power plants. Two of which have been shuttered as it is too expensive to meet EPA guidelines that were set under the Obama Administration green energy initiative. So there’s that going on too. Plus plain old stupidity and lack of planning on the part of people who should know better (ercot, power generation companies, etc.).


To summarize -
We don’t care what is going on in Canada. Our situation was/is dire down here at the moment.

We are a sunbelt coastal state. We know how to deal with heat and hurricanes. Extreme cold weather not do much.

If you are not offering to help ( not sure how you would given your locale) or providing empathy for people whose homes have been damaged from burst pipes, loss of tank inhabitants etc. due to cold then please
STOP TALKING/POSTING.

I think emotions are a little raw, let's get the thread back on track and stop attacking each other, this isn't the MARSHian way.
that's fair; I just think it was the repeated requests for compassion and understanding falling on deaf ears (and then getting gaslit) that made many of us feel a bit frustrated.

does moderating a forum ever feel like you're the only adult trying to corral a bunch of children? :LOL: I appreciate you trying to diffuse the situation.
