Texas Starts To Rebound After Cold Snap

The state’s power grid is getting back to normal today after Monday’s unseasonably cold temperatures.  Overnight lows this morning were in the upper teens in Lufkin, and today’s high will reach about 46.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, issued warnings Monday about the pressure on the state’s power grid, and urged us all to conserve energy, especially during peak hours.  Anytime power use across the state is at a peak – and that’s between 6 and 9am, and again from 4 and 8pm – we’re asked to limit the use of major appliances and conserve as much energy as we can.  There is no danger of a rolling blackout today, but ERCOT urges smart energy use nonetheless.

Wind chills in the Great Lakes region today will be 20 to 30 degrees below zero.  Be glad you live in Texas!
