150M People Under Winter Advisories, 1 Dead As 'Unprecedented' Storm Stretches Across 25 States; 3.5M Without Power In Texas

An "unprecedented" winter storm continued its assault on the nation Monday, killing at least one person in Louisiana, leaving millions without power in Texas and wreaking travel havoc across a wide swath of the USA because of heavy snow and ice. FULL STORY

Why Texas Has Gone Dark

The Lone Star state is currently short of electricity because half of the Texas wind fleet (the largest in the nation) is iced over and incapable of generating electricity. Additionally, the natural gas infrastructure Texas has become so reliant upon has also frozen up.

Texas’s experience highlights the perils of becoming overly reliant upon wind, solar and natural gas because these energy sources are not as reliable as coal or nuclear power during extreme weather conditions.

But there is more to the story than that. Texas has what some regard as a free market in energy, but in fact it is distorted by the massive federal subsidies paid by the federal government. These subsidies often cause the price of electricity to go negative; that is, wind farms will actually pay utilities to take electricity off their hands. The resulting market dislocation devastates reliable energy sources.

Lordy! All the "Green Energy" has become a huge money laundering scheme. They make tons of money when nothing works. "SAVE THE EARTH" and Freeze to death,* Now , that's progress :confused: :shock:

*or how I went back to doing my laundry, by the stream, beating it on rocks and they convinced me it was called "Progress" :D

Y'think freezing to death in the dark is progress? Wait 'til folks get the bill.

Here in SE WI it's currently cloudy, relatively cool at 72 (average high 81, & forecast high of 80 today) & 100% humidity. Scattered storms are expected later today & tomorrow with chances of rain tapering off Sunday but picking up again mid-week

Highs around 77 are forecast through Thursday, and only 68 next Friday. The July 4th holiday weekend is expected to be below normal highs in the 70s with chance of showers & T-storms each day

I don't like the dampness but we can use the rain. Plus highs only in the 70s are way preferable to sweltering triple-digits.

We have some really "Bad Magic" going on ! Not one day under a 100°, for the last 3 weeks or more, and no rain in sight, they tell us. Now we have "Haze" that dumps the air quality, to the too dangerous to breath catagory.

The "Farmers Almanac" way off, check it out for your area.

Here's what the almanac has for my SE neck o' the WI woods

Jul 1-4 A few t-storms, hot
Jul 5-11 Scattered t-storms, cool
Jul 12-24 A few t-storms, warm
Jul 25-28 Sunny, cool
Jul 29-31 T-storms, cool
July temperature 69.5° (1° below avg.)
precipitation 4" (2" above avg. east, 1" below west)

It's not far from what we've had 'til now but far's the latter part of the month, Accuweather's forecast doesn't agree, tho I dunno... when they say "cool" that's relative to what, the week or two before???
