The latest winter storm, dubbed “Snowpocalypse 2.0,” has struck central Texas. This time, the problem is not just snow or even icy roads. Instead, it’s fallen trees that are causing the biggest issues, unlike two years ago.
Central Texas has been hit with two days of freezing rain which has resulted in a buildup of ice on trees. This has caused the trees to fall onto cars, homes, and power lines, leading to widespread power outages. Over 150,000 residents, including the person writing this, are currently without electricity. The writer had to leave their apartment due to the dropping temperature, which was 54 degrees.
This is one of the many oaks that fell outside my sister’s house.
For those that are ragging on Texas saying we can’t handle “snow”. This is NOT snow pic.twitter.com/Av2K8put4S
