      • The majority of Texans alive today have never experienced events anything like this past week. Wood? Bread, milk, toilet paper always. But no wood because no one ever thinks it would get that cold in TX and have the power grid fail.

  1. I read that El Paso is on a different power grid. And they are able to get help from other states. So El Paso has power. I didn’t completely understand. But it sounds as though El Paso decided not to go with that company ERCO. I am curious why.

  2. Great, and please let me know! I read this last night and now can’t find the article. And this morning at the gym it was on the early today show. I may have the acronym for the power company incorrect but I’m close.

    It has to do with Texas wanting to be completely independent and relying only on power produced in Texas. Which is apparently different from other states. Most states apparently cooperate with each other across state lines. The Texas does not, except for the El Paso area.
