Weather-Related Power Outage…

The entire state of Texas, running low on energy, is experiencing a rolling power outage – 20 minutes of power on, followed by 40 minutes of power off. Media reports indicate that the conservation plan may continue for up to 48 hours.

21:28 GMT UPDATE: Power just restored…new posts shortly.
