    A bit concerning that we haven't heard from him, actually. He's in Corpus Christi, right? They might be having a harder time dealing with this than we are, given that they are a coastal resort town that should be having warm tropical weather. :/

    Yeah, I get that people screwed up, our power supplies aren't adequate, etc. But who could have predicted that the entire freaking state would be frozen from the tip of the panhandle in the north to the beaches of our southern Gulf Coast. Really, wtf.

    Yeah I think that's where he is. Pretty sure he moved there for the Type O Negative reference which is absolutely the right thing to do.

    dude i was JUST listening to that album and then i clicked this thread and saw your post five minutes later, that's so weird

    in fact what i did was i stumbled upon a recent-ish live recording where they played walk the path of sorrow and i realized you could actually hear the lyrics pretty clearly (because they are not otherwise available in the booklet or elsewhere) so i fired up NOTEPAD.EXE and transcribed them and then i listened to the real version and double checked my work

    And just like that, we went from -2 degrees a few mornings ago to 73 degrees yesterday. Everything is back to normal other than the ongoing repairs and cleanup. People on variable rate electricity plans, who were actually able to use power during the cold snap, now have electric bills in the thousands of dollars. The governor is working to correct that mess, though. My apartment never flooded, thankfully. Moving to my new apartment on Saturday, weeee.

    I'm not going to lie man... I did not detect any sarcasm at all. For that I apologize. I'm glad that you didn't incur a gigantic loss though. That's some true luck (although I have no idea about the average impact to your geographical location).

    No worries. Im just lucky Im across the street from a hospital and have 2 more down the road along with a fire station. Pretty sure that saved my ass.

    While I did not lose anything or suffer power or water loss, plenty of people close to me did.

    I hear that! Every time the power goes out, I'm happy to live down the road from a fire station.

    My floor at work flooded from busted pipes in the ceiling last week. I was afraid of that considering the building is nearly 150 years old. They haven't told us the exact extent of the damage in my office, but shit. I dread finding out. I've seen footage from the rest of the floor and it's not good. I had a box full of personal belongings sitting on top of my cubicle. I was supposed to resume working in-office next week, but we'll see.
