I'm in Alamo Heights, on a well-known street with smaller houses averaging 6k+ sq ft. While my immediate neighbors and I didn't have power for 6-7 hour spans at a time, folks two houses over did. It's just how the grid works. Luck of the draw.

Bottom line, people everywhere in this city- even very wealthy neighborhoods with politically influential people- were affected.
We get it! You are a very very good very very good rich woke liberal.

How much could my 75 dollar electric bill actually be?

750 dollars? 7500 dollars?

Nobody talks in real numbers, all i see is emotional response and no logic.
Gas bills for Texas total 51 billion for those four days.

Wonder if there is any truth to this ? Feds limited power production during the storm ?
Some confusion between EPA and DOE, so maybe other errors in it:

Even Wiki knows it is not unbiased.
I like to read articles for knowledge and for fun and like to hear from all sides. Right (Fox), left (CNN), and many things in between (PBS, The Guardian, The independent etc. Etc.).

Ok, Wikipedia is "slanted" and "lacks quality" to you (which by the way you linked to originally and even quoted from) and the references they give are also slanted to you. The Slate is slanted to you also.

Did you read the well written Houston Chronical article (that explains a lot of what went on in full) that I linked to or is the Houston Chronical slanted to you as well?

Wikipedia does not seem very neutral anymore and seems to need fact checking often.

From what I understand people can, or at least could, go into Wikipedia and change information. There have been some cases where “joking” or outright incorrect information was added. Sometimes I find information skewed one way or focused on some things while leaving out important details. I assumed it was kind of like someone’s research paper where they might cover everything or just focus on what the author found important. I’m not sure that’s how it still works but my son wasn’t allowed to cite them as a reference for papers in school. I read information there out of curiosity but if it was important I’d verify it with other sources.

I wonder if SAWS (San Antonio Water) had a heads up on the instantaneous price increase of electricity and shut down their pumps ? They claim to be the power company's biggest user. If so, probaby saved their customers some money.
