For a part of the country that only rarely gets snow, we are having an event. One weather site calls this Winter Fest 2021; my favorite is our bookstore calling it the Ice-pocalypse and that's probably closer to the reaction. We had freezing rain last night. The weather person had to explain to Houstonians what "sleet" is. Then, there was some snow overnight on top of that. We noted blips in the power Sunday evening and were familiar - we shut down computers and other consuming devices planning on a power outage. Around 2 am ours went out and still is, presumably from lines being down. Other parts of the metro have rolling blackouts because some generator stations are down because of the ice.
When we first moved here, lots of people were getting pools in the back yard or outdoor living areas added-on. We assessed the risks of the area and decided it was having a hurricane in August when it's 100 degrees and losing power. We had a whole-house generator installed. It's been hotter than ever last summer and tonight could be a record low in the single digits. Though we didn't think of ice glaze in Houston, I guess the generator works at both ends of climate change extremes!
So, we are OK for now, limiting consumption. This will be a memorable event for this area for years to come; Iowans would call it "Monday".
