Concern for our Texas cousins and some bad ideas on the Texas power grid? 3/3/21 (S2E9)

The recent winter storms that hit Texas has left cousins there without electricity, without natural gas for heating and associated electricity generation. Some cousins are also exposed for large electric bills based upon their electrical payment plan.

The real bad idea was that I heard the Governor blame the 10% of power total generated by wind power as the cause of the major power gird shutdown across the state. A little further research indicated that the wind turbines had not been appropriately winterized. Come on cousins!
