Saw a video of Pringle Lake, video from an airboat I think and the footage looked real enough, but things are real bad in Pringle Lake, tons of dead trout, dead trout everywhere, footage that made it hard to imagine there were that many nice trout in one place and for them to be all dead. Looked real bad.
Most of the coastal NOAA stations were reading water temperatures way into the 30s for an extended period and that cannot be good.
My wife works for State Farm Insurance. Their whole system essentially went down yesterday, the 24/7 “Jake from State Farm” so that if people called in with a claim, the process wasn’t working. Her boss closed the office Monday and Tuesday due to the weather, but they will be open today and it will be a total $h*t show, especially if the computer system that handles claims is still down.
Lots and lots of busted pipes and flooded houses. Uninhabitable houses from pipes that ruptured flooding the house and people had left the houses to go to a neighbor or family member or somewhere that still had power.
Cannot understand why, but we have never lost power for one second at our home in the Centerpoint service area. Makes me wonder who or what is also on this particular grid. Does Centerpoint or any of the other entities have a “thou shall not turn off this grid” list?
All over the commercial area of town power was out, but except for one section with among other things a Target, a Jack in the Box, and a Raising Cane’s. Never have I seen such a long line in the drive thru of a Jack in the Box. The HEB was closed and people with no power to heat up something to eat, not a mystery on the drive thru.
But, 2021 has not been so very impressive so far. Hope the inshore saltwater fish did much better than the fears and things get back to tolerable for everyone real soon.
