When the week started, all of Texas was awestruck by the snow that was brought in by an arctic front. But by the second day in, fun of having snow and the subsequent ice started to wear off and, as day three rolled around, just about every Texan was over it.

With the frozen temperatures, the blast of frigid air brought a slew of problems. Texas residents went hours and days without electricity or dealt with rolling brownouts for two days.

Very much agree!!

I think we should also note those businesses and individuals which struggled to remain open and operational while ensuring that their employees were not put in jeopardy coming to work and going home.

Too many people are trying to place blame, too many not looking at the tremendous efforts put forth by police and fire departments, hospitals and physicians offices, power and water providers, and the rest of the folks who provided food, water and in some cases shelter.

Come on folks! Let's give everyone who worked a hand! I got to sit at the house and was merely uncomfortable, those folks actually got out in it.

My thanks, and the thanks of my family goes out to you all!
