It’s one of them times I’m glad I get to choose where I go and when I’ll be there.
For those that don’t already this is a good time to carry a short long gun where it’s handy at least through the summer and check the WMLs
He lost me with the “weather wars” but coal plants shutting down in the east, lake Powell about to shut down 5 million with no hydro and of course Kalifornia with all its self inflicted issues are causes for concern
Some states put the cart before the horse with green energy, not putting the resources not only for generation, but storage capacity, and then prematurely shutting down coal, natural gas, and nuclear energy plants.
So, yes, some of these states will experience blackouts due to poor planning.
Granted, the Texas Arctic Blast, their natural gas facilities were not insulated/hardened for those kind of temps. They figured that kind of event was a once in a 100 years.
However, I have a friend down that way. He has said over the past few years, they experience a few “once in a 100 year” events every year.
