        We have our fair share of headaches. Apparently my home winterization skills need improvement! We had a néw tankless water heater installed outside that did not survive . I did better with the cold water so at least we have cold water and power .

          If you have cold water and power you should have hot water, at least in small quantities. We've had a string of power outages, but we have a gas stove. Whenever the power went out we could at least make coffee. My wife cannot survive without coffee! (In her order of importance: Air-Coffee-Heat-Food-Water)

            You are correct. I can heat cold water on the stove in pans and have hot water as needed. Many in Houston are suffering . Many have no water and wrecked houses from broken pipes. I have learned a few lessons as many of my fellow southerners.

              Generally we take the approach that if it gets too cold you have not moved south far enough. I would expect key west to get a few new residents however it will be a little difficult to fit 4 million of us on the keys. We will for sure need to build several more interstate highways and pour millions of tons of concrete to make us feel at home. Perhaps after we annex Cuba into the city we will have enough space to rebuild.

                We made it through. Still needing to boil water, but that should be cleared up in the next 12-24 hours. No issues with water until water went out for the whole city, then turned it off at the street and drained pipes to make sure there wouldn't be any freezing. Have come to the conclusion that good running water is more important than electricity and heat. (But I have a lot of clothes for winter that many here don't.)

                  I, too, have been thinking of our Texas "S2KCA family" and although it sounds like you have been hit pretty hard, I pray that you are starting to get back to normal and everyone will stay safe.

                    We have no hot water. It is likely to be weeks before I can get it fixed. While I enjoy romantic jesters. Pouring boiling water in the bathtub for ms speedracer is getting a little old.

                      We no longer have to boil water and everything seems good here. Sorry to hear about the hot water Speedracer.

                          We had no power for over 2 days. it was freezing cold inside. We did have wood for the fireplace, but it didn't provide much heat. A pipe froze and broke above the master BR, so the water had to be shut off at the curb. I was able to cap the broken pipe the next day, so we had wate again, but with very low pressure. No wifi, no internet.. We had to use pool water for flushing toilets. Glad to be slowly normalizing now. John, come over if you need anything or if we can help.

                            Thank you for the kind offer Jim. We have power and cold water back online and getting back to normal.
