Well we have had some cold weather here in South Texas, not in Chicago or Boston standards, but for us it's been cold. As I mentioned last night I was heading to bed early to read and not use excess electricity. We had rolling blackouts most of the day (yesterday) to prevent a major blackout from the increased power usage due to an ice storm in the Dallas area. This was statewide, and so about every hour and a half I lost power for about 15 minutes. Seems crazy to me but apparently it worked and today we're back to normal.
