Frozen Texas

Last month in February, week right after the February 14th, Texas observed one among the coldest winters in history. The temperatures plummeted to -9°F (-23°C). The snow remained outside blocking the driveways and the temperatures remained sub-zero for several days. Now this is not something out of the ordinary for places far up north on the globe or higher in the altitude like Washington, New York, Canada, Greenland, Norway etc. But this is not normal for a place such as Texas and the authority were not ready for handling this situation. The worst impact of this weather was a spike in the energy supply demand.
