Rolling Blackouts Warning for Monday!

Protect your Valentines. Uri has come to town and he packs a punch most Texans are not trained to counter.  If we all conserve the impact will be less severe.

What can I do TODAY on Valentine’s Day and beyond?

  • Bring in your pets. This is life-threatening for them, too. You are their caregiver.

  • Prepare food today. Recognize that you may not be able to do it tomorrow. Boil eggs, cook meat, make a casserole, etc.

  • Fill pitchers and containers with water for flushing toilets, drinking, food prep, spit baths. Save 5+ gallons per person.

  • Change your routine to help mitigate peak usage of electricity and water by avoiding bathing and doing laundry in the early mornings and evenings.

  • Limit washing to 1-2 loads over the next several days.

  • Stay inside! Don’t drive. This weather is life-threatening.

  • If your pipes freeze DO NOT run the water. Close the valve to stop the pressure, then thaw safely. Instructions HERE.
