The record cold temperatures hitting Texas left citizens shocked. As everything froze and stopped working, people tried all sorts of things to stay warm.

Of course, Texans took plenty of pictures to document this unusual event. As they say, one day we’ll laugh about it.

Insane Weather In Texas

As the temperatures hit a record low of 5 degrees F, Texas faced an unexpected emergency. The infrastructures did not hold, and people had to struggle through the week.

Moreover, power shortages left almost 2 million Texans without electricity. Water also stopped running in many households as the pipes froze.

Hopefully, this will stay a once-in-a-lifetime event. With climate change going fast, though, extreme weather might become more common everywhere.

Here are some of the effects of the winter storm on the lives of Texans.

“This winter storm system is testing us in many ways. Pushing us to our limits. Creating challenges we didn’t expect and require us to make tough decisions.

It’s hard to see the beauty in any of this snow through the pits in our stomachs, shivering animals, no running water, and no power for over 100 hours at the farm. We’ve all been doing our best to keep the eggs warm and the animals fed, but this egg got away.

Here’s the inside of a frozen chicken egg.”
