    might be the same in other parts of the state, but at least here in austin a lot of the farmers markets are going today and say they have a lot of excess produce because restaurants werent open most of the week. just a thought if youre wanting to avoid the store

    This will go down as the greatest natural disaster to have hit the state so far when everything is accounted for. But to think it was mostly avoidable would be pretty comical in a book and possibly make for a good movie. But this is real life and only manages to make it more tragic and infuriating.

    There is a new farmers market that just opened in east Dallas. They sell stuff on the weekends in Canton. Stopped by last night on the way home from checking out some customers’ situations and their shelves are flush with beautiful produce.

    Seems like this is exactly the kind of thing a senator can help a governor ask the president to do sooner, instead of fleeing the country.

    Yesterday afternoon a tree branch fell on a power line two houses down. PG&E had to turn off power in the local grid so that tree crews could safely remove it. While they had the power off PG&E decided to have the tree crews do some other work that needed to be done to clear branches away from power lines. Power was off for about 6 hours total, no big deal, but all evening I got to listen to my neighbors yelling at the crews out in the street because they couldn't make dinner. Went out later to chat with the PG&E foreman and apologize for the selfish entitlement of my neighbors.

    Still no water, going on 50+ hours now, meanwhile in some parts of Austin, car washes are open and there are lines of people waiting to wash their fucking cars.

    This state is run by morons.

    Ours was always clear but the city said that testing never showed any contamination, it was just that pressure fell low enough that they were obliged to issue the boil order. Order was lifted at 10am this morning
