And just for shits and giggles – when I was grabbing that link this one turned up in the list. This was the first new record that I ‘owned’. An elder cousin who was lumbered with looking after me for some reason wanted to go to the record shop (for the youngsters herein – that was a “shop” that sold “records” – yeah – go talk to a grandparent) and he asked me what was my favourite record, When I said this one he bought the single for me.

now if hardman could take that initiative but he’ll probably just say next year is only year 3 of Reids complicated system that takes 5+ years to learn, no offseason, no preseason, yada yada yada. I want to like Hardman but he has to be more than an early game gadget player next year now that hes the #2

Supposedly he is going into the offseason with a “huge chip on his shoulder.”

Rashad Fenton looked nice when given the chance. Lack of cb depth will keep him from getting opportunities. Maybe Pringle?

Not sure I agree. Okung has never really been healthy. Vernon coming off an achilles, is he not? Robinson…not sold. Other two seem like contributors, I suppose.

I would write things for AG if not for the following:

1) Time and other commitments.
2) No special insight into football (which would mean others would dismiss or mock my posts)
3) No connections in the news world
4) The only thing I might be able to contribute could be potential poetic pieces looking at the news of the week, upcoming games, that sort of thing. (I did one once here and it got decent reviews and appreciation…)

I saw that the power grid I’m in ranges from the Dakotas all the way down to Oklahoma. They’re going to be randomly shutting power off in sections throughout today because yesterday the power company went through a record amount of natural gas.

We’re through the worst of it down here. Temps should move above freezing around lunch. All my neighbors across the street have been without power for about 30 hours. Been providing coffee and phone charging for anyone who needs. Took in a buddy till his place is up and running. I really hate the cold

Texas has its own power grid. They arent connected to the eastern half of the US or the Western half if the US. They are stand alone. Dont tell Ted Cruz but Texas is the state that gets the highest percentage of its power from wind roughly 15 percent which is frozen, but most of this is due to an increase in demand. Id assume most Texans have electric heat due to normally low demand. Increase in demand, loss of part of supply, and not connected to the the other 2 primary grids in the country. Get some blankets.

Because this normally a time of low demand there may also be work being done on major power plants. This would be a normal time of the year to schedule a shut down of a coal or nuke plant for several weeks for major repairs or upgrades.

This is just speculation on my part.

NRC websites list 4 nuke units in Tejas. Both units at comanche peak site are at 100 percent power output. At the south texas site 1 unit at 100 percent but the other at 0. Thats roughly 4000 MW not online.

There are emergency makeshift heater options, may not be worth the effort.
Hell, heat up some brick or rocks on the grill then wrap in a towel as a foot warmer.

If you have some candles, even tea lights, you can make a heater big enough to warm a room with a few bricks and a terracotta pot.

Also, an empty veggie can with a partial roll of TP soaked on isopropyl alcohol is basically canned heat, for cooking and warmth.

Also. Keep all of your insulated clothing (blankets, coats, etc) to the far side of your body from your heat source. They’ll insulate you from the heat just as well as the cold.

Didnt think about before, but I was reading an article and it makes a ton of sense. The gas plants and coal plants are not designed to operate in sub freezing temps. Major equipment at power plants in these areas typically are not enclosed. They might have some heat tracing on pipes but probably not enough and they are freezing up.

Plus the available supply of natural gas is limited. We’re (I’m about 60 miles north of you) being asked to reduce consumption because there’s not enough gas in reserve. Of course – that does rather bring into question just how bad a situation do you realistically plan (and pay) for.

Fortunately we’ve got a nice sunny day so the solar farms are picking up some of the slack this afternoon.

They flare natural gas to burn it up because they have so much, but are not allowed by the green nazi movement to build more natural gas plants and thus rely too much on bird killing, eye sore windmills which froze up with ice. Short version.

I hope at least this will open some eyes, my dad has been in the electrical contracting business for the last 48 years, so I get the inside scoop on a lot of this stuff, and a secure future should be built on nuclear, hydroelectric, and natural gas power generation.

If I banned everyone who called a general group of people “nazis”, a lot of people would be gone. I think it’s silly to say those types of things, but I’m not going to start banning people for that now. Funny how it’s just now that that should be a bannable offense. We’re good, pam.
