Global cooling! Make sure you have alternative heating sources.

For a pioneer country, the USA sure has dumbed down and softened up.

I have two generators, a few gas and liquid fuel stoves. Spare deep cycle batteries, wireless broadband modem. I live in a city where it never snows but we have had more than our share of power cuts. With $500 worth of food in our freezers, I don't want to waste that stuff.

"The government need to do something". Yeah, right.

The cartoonists are having a field day with Texas.

Even after the ice storm and grid loss, I would still rather live in Texas than Cali or NY. That's a no brainer.

Indeed.

A facet of this we're seeing is the trend toward electric everything and hence reliance on it. Our useless leftist government is intent on saving the world by emitting less carbon and that means not having gas or coal heating. One bad weather event or solar storm and we have nothing.

Not just utilities.

Seems most everything in life is becoming electricity dependent.
which to me seems like everything is becoming much more FRAGILE.
