Lol no, you're giving some idiots too much credit. Most that have died from that left their car running in the garage. I know that sounds insanely harsh but it's a common thing people know. Can't argue about the last part, been screaming about that for days and I have had power. It's pathetic.The situation is terrible down there in TX. This is like a 100yr freeze and peeps do not know how to deal with this! I am seeing news reports of folks getting into trouble with CO (carbon monoxide) poisoning because they do not know any better about using un-vented heating in their homes! The most pathetic thing about this ...is that the authorities knew this cold snap was coming and they did nothing in advance to prepare for it!
