    Griddy lost their ability to be an electrical provider in Texas. Texas legislature getting all of its scapegoats in a row.

    Edit: I am not defending Griddy. It is just that they were actively communicating and transparent with their customers throughout the event. They even went so far as telling their customers to change providers immediately. They even asked Texas for dollar for dollar assistance or forgiveness for customers with high bills.

    I looked at their other tweets and it looks like this guy saw some random customers not wearing masks and is freaking out on heb. It happens at my heb too. It’s always the ones decked out in trump stuff or even infowars stuff that refuse to wear masks and challenge people to call them out.

    Sorry if already discussed, but the fucked up thing about this catastrophe is that it'll happen to the state again. 100% that they do not change a single thing. "This storm was unique" they'll say. "No way another storm hits the entire state all at once like this one did". "We'll be fine with the power generation available from other parts of our grid".

    Anyone who needs a “medical exemption” because a mask would be detrimental to their grocery shopping needs to stay home and instacart. They’re not healthy enough to leave the house.

    The story of that first name, FYI


    Soon after Carrol Anderson lost power in his Crosby home earlier this week, his oxygen machine stopped working. He had asked his provider for more tanks the previous week but didn’t get any before harsh winter conditions set in. The 75-year old Vietnam War veteran turned to two small bottles of oxygen he had, but his supply quickly depleted.

    With no firewood left and temperatures plummeting, Anderson turned to his last resort to breathe: A small portable oxygen tank he kept in his truck.

    It was 19 degrees outside. He died in his truck Tuesday.

    “He shouldn’t have had to die because he couldn’t breathe because we didn’t have power,” said Gloria Anderson, Carrol’s wife of 30 years, through tears in a telephone interview.

    Our very serious politicians are struggling to appease their corporate donors while also gaslighting their dumb voter base.

    They’ll figure it out.

    It’s typical power plant maintenance outage time right now and it’s a fucking nightmare trying to get them scheduled right now. But texas ercot grid runs on its own rules like all idiotic things texas does. Fuck your minimum capacity margins ferc we’ll go with a much smaller number.
