While I'm very grateful I did not lose power during this, I am not looking forward to getting this month's utility bill.

There was an ice storm back in the 90s, not long after I moved here, and it knocked out power to areas for at least a week. It wasn't as cold, but the actual historic significance of these temperatures is besides the point. I don't care if people are accurately using the terms or not, what bothers me is that they're letting politicians and energy company executives avoid accountability.I’ve heard it many times also, but the last time I remember it being like this was before you lived in Texas. 1983. Had snow on the ground for about a week, sub-freezing temps for almost that whole time. I take most weather people with a grain of salt, when it’s a bad storm they want to try to grab people’s attention and they start tossing around “once in a lifetime” and “hundred year event” like they’re going out of date and have to be used before the expiration date.
This giant blizzard has already been downgraded to a foot and a half, and the start time keeps getting pushed back. I am not impressed.March is the snowiest month for Colorado, so it's not like I'm shocked.
Also, I have nowhere to go, and I'm probably not in the path of the biggest stuff.
Well, the snow is wet and heavy, so it's not going to be as high as fluffy snow, but it's packing in pretty well now. Also huge gusts of wind, so that's exciting.This giant blizzard has already been downgraded to a foot and a half, and the start time keeps getting pushed back. I am not impressed.
