Ready for Spring

February 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Weather

What a crazy winter! Inches of snow and ice have hit the Dallas area harder than I have ever seen in my life time. Instead of being out showing houses, I am stuck at home with rolling blackouts. The temperatures are so cold in Texas that our power grid cannot handle it. So, ERCOT decided to turn off everyone’s power for 15-45 minutes to save energy. Didn’t they see this weather coming? And why didn’t they just ask us to turn down our heaters and try to conserve energy?
So far, 3 times today, we have been hit is a power outage. We were lucky because they only lasted 10-15 minutes, but I feel for the people who have had the power off for hours. The temperature in our home dropped 5 degrees in just a few minutes.
Anyway, the groundhog did not see his shadow, and spring should be here soon. I am excited to see what the season brings, not only as far as weather, but also buyer and seller traffic.
