You get what you vote for (and my sympathies to all those that didn't vote for this shit... I can't imagine your frustration levels)
San Antonio didn't vote for these fuckers. But you can bet we'll be among the first to suffer blackouts instead of the rural fucks who vote these nazis into power.

I guess I shouldn't laugh too much since we do complain about the snow up here in the Northeast, but Texas really only has itself to blame.

If three million people in Texas died tomorrow from an entirely avoidable disaster the state government response would basically be "shit happens" and voters would mostly be like "yup". Expectations of the state to actually do anything about well anything really simply don't exist. It's practically nihilistic.
Really, we should be happy for them as they've been taken into the Lord's loving arms.

81 degrees here with 40% humidity. Really nice out like it has been all week :)
Well it's a bit warmer here. 85.0F and 70% humidity.


Oops The 85F is the dewpoint. it's actually 96F and feels like 125.6F. Still cooler than yesterday where we hit 104.5F

Here's my forecast for the week. Lately, I've only had to turn the AC on in the evening and let it cycle once.

We've had about 40 top-ten days here so far this spring/summer in CT. Really the best summer I have ever seen in my 48 years. Could use some more rain but other than that, just spectacular.

Orrr it's nihilistically practical.

Have already had four days this year that would qualify as the hottest day of the year in 9 of the last 12 years in San Antonio.

It's a great time to sell however. If you own, sell, move, rent for a couple of years until the market is more favorable towards the buyers, and then buy again.
Or buy slightly more rural where prices are not inflated as much, still make a little profit.
