After going days without power, Texans are now facing severe water crisis

The brutal winter storm, which triggered days-long power outage for millions of residents, has now caused a severe water crisis in the state. While electricity has been mostly restored, more than 13 million people currently don’t have access to clean and running water. Taps have run dry in many homes and bottled water is nearly impossible to find. Thousands of Texans have started to boil snow now.

If only they regulated their power infrastructure. They could have bought power from neighboring states, but because they refused to regulate their power infrastructure they can't even do that. Those windmills that republicans are blaming work in iceland, because in other countries they properly coated them. Not in "no regulation" texas. Please, for the love of your humans, texas, stop "owning the libs" at the cost of lives.

The government in Texas had a decade after the winter storm of 2011 to take measures to weather proofing the pipes and devices that transport the gas and oil or operate the nuclear energy. Wind and solar are only 10% of the energy in Texas and was not the cause of the failure but the lack of preventive measures of the Texan government. Montana has wind energy and colder temperatures and they’re doing fine.

The picture is of a lineman. He doesnt have a degree, he works long hours in the weather and gets paid very well for it. Those guys never get as much credit as they deserve. I know I couldn't do their job. If you have electricity, thank a lineman.

Biden refuses to give up his 1000 troop bodyguard. They could have been driving water trucks... but are rather used for political grand standing. Biden prefers his political games to American lives #NotMyPresident #MostRacistPresidentEver #ImpeachBiden

after winter storm, no water??? I don't know, maybe collect and melt snow, if not just eat it, I'm always confused how fast Americans hear it'll precipitate, so they buy bottled water
