Après la Neige (After the Snow)

A beautiful sight but a sad aftermath.

Hello, everyone. If you’ve been following our blog, there was no Mega Millions post. This is because we went close to three days without electricity. As for Lotto Texas and Powerball? We got our electricity back late last night and will not be able to provide analysis tonight. We’ll be bringing you the latest Mega Millions analysis in Saturday’s post.

Late Sunday night/early Monday morning, Texas was hit with snow and ice, plus record-low temperatures that hadn’t been seen in decades. The state’s power grid couldn’t handle the load and parts of it needed to be shut down. Otherwise, it would have spelled an even larger catastrophe.

Because of the refusal to properly winterize Texas’s power grid, millions were left cold, hungry and frustrated. As many dealt with (near) freezing temperatures in their homes and/or pipes that had burst, some lost their lives.

The saddest part is that all of this could have been avoided. As Texas continues to get back on its feet, keep us in your thoughts, y’all.
