I Am Safe.
Thursday, February 18, 2021
I am loss for words but I am sure as I type a way, the words will come flowing out. Yes, I moved to Texas to be with my family members who moved here last year. Yes, the move was horrendous because I am a true blue Californian gal all my life and to pack up and leave my beautiful Marin...it was tough. Yes I purchased an adorable house but within two months of living here, I fractured my ankle and had surgery. But that is all behind me now except I am still hobbling in a boot for three more weeks. But the big point I would like to express is the: WEATHER!
OMG, Have we had a hectic four days of treacherous weather and it still is showing it's craziness by snowing heavily right now. I had to move to my daughter's home because I lost power; her home is on the same grid as a nursing home a few blocks away so her power stayed on MOST of the time. She lost water function yesterday; my power finally came on this morning but I have no running water to speak of.
I am in my home now and staying warm. Anyone who doesn't believe in the climate problem this world is having should have their heads examined. The weather pattern Texas has had to deal with the past four days NEVER happens. We are experiencing something so out of the ordinary; it is quite obvious that the climate change is due to what we as humans are destroying.
I am concerned about busting pipes but have had my water running in all my faucets and showers until the water plant decided to shut down the water system. I have no idea when we will be getting it going again. All my plants look in terrible shape, I hope they will survive this very cold weather we are having.
I am so grateful I had a place to go when the power was out. But there are so many "Texans" that aren't so lucky. I am counting my blessings. That's all I can do for now...
