How did you get out of your driveway?  Ice shuts Texas down.

Where I worked we had our own substation so we seldom lost power but when we did it got really dark. No windows in the buildings and the emergency lighting couldn’t handle the heat in the building so it never worked. When the power first went out we had some light coming off the hot steel, the only other light was the headlights on the hilifts

fify.  I see many parallels between Atlanta and Dallas.  The 30k Millionaire, the trophy wife, the giant truck to get to the mall and the inability to drive in winter.

I guess they went to plug doors afterwards? After the DC-10 issues with clamshell cargo doors, I like plugs much better even if they eat up some cargo space.
