Temperatures in the low 100s today in Texoma means it is time to get out the sweaters and the gloves. ;)

But seriously folks, if it is this hot in July then August should be intolerable. Good time to be on the North Fork. :biggrin:

ERCOT says it will be able to meet demand which may be true as long as all the power plants stay up and running.

Older daughter and SIL are implementing power conservation measures. Raising the thermostat setting. Delaying using the washer, dryer and dishwasher.

I feel terrible for people in Texas that didn't vote for Republicans.

Temperatures over 100 and no electricity. :eek:

I would be at serious risk.

And all totally avoidable. :blackeyebig:

Wichita Falls will implement further water use restrictions if the reservoirs drop below 65% of capacity which seems likely by September.

WF gets its water from 3 local lakes. WF has one of the most advanced water treatment plants in the country enabling the immediate reuse of sanitary sewer water but water that does not go into the sewer has to be replaced from the 3 lakes.
