Dozens of dead expected in historic Texas deep freeze, refrigerator trucks ordered for bodies

As record cold temperatures sweep the southern states, a grim death toll is expected, especially in the state of Texas where rolling blackouts have customers trapped without heating.

Officials in Texas have already confirmed 10 deaths and expect to find “a couple of dozen bodies of people who have died from the cold.”

Meanwhile, in Galveston county, officials are requesting refrigerated trucks to handle the dead bodies because morgues don’t have power to run their facilities.

Fox News reports:

“That number is going to climb as we have the ability to do more welfare checks and check on people who’ve been trapped and without power for the last 48 to 50 hours,” Henry told Houston’s KPRC-TV.

The request comes as millions of Texans remain without power a full day after historic snowfall and single-digit temperatures created a surge in demand for electricity to warm up homes unaccustomed to such extreme lows, buckling the state’s power grid and causing widespread blackouts.

Expectations that the outages would be shared evenly by the state’s 30 million residents quickly gave way to a cold reality, as pockets in some of America’s largest cities, including San Antonio, Dallas and Austin, were left to shoulder the lasting brunt of a catastrophic power failure and in subfreezing conditions that Texas’ grid operators had known was coming.

Of course it’s no accident that Texas’ power grid is collapsing. In fact, it’s a direct result of pie-in-the-sky “renewable energy” initiatives. Windmills are freezing in place, solar is unavailable, and even fossil fuel plants are collapsing because maintinance resources were diverted to “cleaner” energy types.

It’s a man-made disaster that could be coming to a place near you as well. Joe Biden should be asked whether he still plans on passing the “Green New Deal.” If it does pass, this week’s disaster will be tiny compared to what could happen then.

  1. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!|

  2. Ray Well you weren’t satisfied with TRUMP in the White House. I, hope you all got what you wanted from this Idiot who now sets there with storm troopers outside to protect him for us the legal AMERICANS As well as putting up a fence to keep us out, that isn’t the way to make friends and influence people, especially REPUBLICANS. ME!! We haven’t had a really good DEMOCRATE in the white House since FDR, yes I, grew up under him though I, wasn’t old enough to vote for him.

  3. I keep hoping someone who has intimate knowledge of the fraud that was used in abundance for 2020 elections will have an awakening of conscience and come forward or give info anonymously so our real President can be in the office he legally won. He can get us back on track quickly. The fact that patriotic Americans are dying needlessly should touch them..if they have a conscience! President Trump would never let this happen! God bless TX and the folks grieving the loss of loved one

  4. You keep asking who is the smartest president of all time. You should ask who is the dumbest president of all time. It shouldn’t be too hard to figure out when you look at what is happening in Texas.

  5. We know what all should have been done, now thanks to the GND it’s going to get worse.
    Where is Biden and why is he not sending FEMA in immediatley? Just like Obama.

  6. Expecting your govt to help you? yea no you are on your own in times like this, you need to prepare and take care of you and yours.

    1. Well said Larry. This has been my thought process for many years. Why would I want the government to take care of me when I am perfectly capable of doing so myself and much better to boot. Our family goes by this motto: Plan the work and work the plan. Now more than ever we need to be dependent on ourselves and not the government.

  7. This should be a wake up call to ALL states! This should NOT have happened! When are people going to wake up to the fact that wind and solar power are not viable as sources for energy! Governors of the states where joebama is decimating our oil, gas, fossil fuel production should file law suits to block his shutting down drilling operations, fracking, the pipelines that carry oil and their livelihoods. Also law suits to block his bringing in more refugees and illegals that will strain our economy even more! This has to stop!!!!

  8. This is why we need to Secede from the U.S. because they are controlling our electric output due to environmental reasons. We secede and control it ourselves. They can freeze instead of us. We have the largest Grid system in the country which makes this rediculous. We don’t share or ask for help for our grid but they control us which shouldn’t be.

    1. Perhaps all the Gulf States and eastern California could become One? Better yet purge the voter roles of anyone that is: not alive, in a coma, NOT A CITIZEN, in prison for a felony—–AND never again use computer voting machines that can be programed—
      Anyone involved in vote fraud should receive a minimum Ten Year prison sentence, this is especially aimed at vote counting FRAUD–those Five Women in Georgia need to be the 1st arrested and booked on multiple felony charges for what they did after 11 P.M. !

    2. I agree, the Republic of Texas, about 14 more states would go with us. We have the resources and could do it, 6th largest economic country in the world

      1. The scam is worse than that the PLAN is to make America Energy DEPENDENT again, as under Jimmy Carter—The Arab Cartel along with the big oil producer Russia holding Americans hostages.

    1. Start building bon fires and breaking up furniture to keep warm if you have fire places in your house make fires in it keep warm melt snow put pot with handle over fire a boil it let it cool and drink it cook the same way people for godsack that what we did before electricity . You can melt e snow to pore in your toilet an flush it. Improvise.

      1. Thank you Martha. People had better learn how it was done in the 1700’s when electric and natural gas where not here. Furnature can always be replaced lives cannot. Just a pre look at what is coming with the ” new green deal”. We will all be blue.
