The evidence of a winter wonderland has melted away, but the memories and lessons remain.

As meteorologists and their forecast models began predicting a snow event, many started preparing, the best they knew how.

Thanks for the positive article, as it captures the reality of the vast majority of Texans.

Though many are whining and complaining, they fail to see that a large percentage of their misery is there own.

Many did not plan, many failed to take the lessons they should have learned from the shortages and travel issues presented by COVID in 2020, and many simply are looking to blame someone for their inability to 'take charge' of themselves.

My family was without power and water. We prepared as best as possible by wrapping pipes, shutting off water, covering things, double checking and restocking emergency supplies, and 'hunkering down'. We also did the best we could to check on our neighbors and provide support when called upon.

I know this will seem cruel, but.....let's all do a little self introspection before screaming about what someone else didn't do, and look instead at "What did we do?"

Thanks again for your article, it highlights the strength and resourcefulness that is in us all.
