But it is horrible. Someone's head should roll.
Presumably you heat your home with wishes and good intentions, because all other forms of heat run the risk of causing a fire.

People use electric. My current home is all electric but I much prefer gas - lived with that for 56 years problem free. In an all electric home when the power is out you've got no heat, no A/C, no cooking, and in my case living rural no water at all because the well pump stops too.

I might convert to propane at some time in the future if it's financially feasible.

They're saying it will be at least a week before people can return to their homes.

I have all electric. A 15kw Briggs & Stratton generator, a 200A transfer switch, and a 100-gal propane tank means I lose power for a minute, and all goes back on. Best investment I ever made for my house. I can squeeze out 5+ days with my setup, only using oil forced hot water heat when lights go out in the winter. I simply would never own a home with gas, and that's an emphatic no.

According to his family, Leonel Rondon was celebrating just getting his driver's license. He was in the car with 2 friends, the other two are still hospitalized.

Something that is produced, transported, and sold to consumers, e.g. natural gas. Sounds like the NTSB considers gas carried by a pipeline similar to gas carried by other ground transportation like tanker cars.

Electricity. Heat Pump. Much safer. Heat pumps don't even run the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

When I was a child I lived in a house with gas and I thought it was terrifying. You could always smell the smell.. always had to worry about the pilot light and once, we almost did have a problem because a contractor hooked up our gas line on the stove with leaks - no one knew it - and we left the house for a week.. thankfully I came back in time to smell the gas. Just not worth it.
