Everyone at my dads house is confined to a single room with a fire and space heaters. He sent me a picture of the cat which was sleeping on top of the internet router for warmth, they call it a “hotspot”.

I saw a post that was like, 'Please, Texas people, do NOT bring your propane grills inside to use as a heating source' which I was later to understand was meant as an actual, informative post and not a joke

report from texas: it's cold, the power has been out until this afternoon, and we have to boil our tap water for the time being. all of this is impeding my progress on the phenomenology of spirit AND i'm out of beer until the roads clear up, so i'm peeved

Apparently their free-market energy trading provider might send them a text saying they should personally responsibly exercise a contingency plan for emergency electric utility cost increases during a blizzard when wholesale electricity costs $11,000/MW and shop the electric company market without using electricity or freezing to death due to not having access to electricity.

Royce Pierce, a 38-year-old contractor, is one of those Griddy customers who received a notice from the power company to abandon his service—a message he admitted to The Daily Beast he thought was “overly precautionary” as the winter storm loomed.

Now, his bill has skyrocketed over $7,000 in the last two days, he said. As of Wednesday, Pierce owes Griddy $8,162.73 for the month of February—a shocking price considering the bill for his two-story house was $387.70 just last month. Last February, Pierce said he only paid $330.

only $330. for a single month of power. what the actual fuck. the $8k+ price is obviously absurd but... >$300/month isn't??
