Temperatures in the state have plummeted to single-digits and with the absence of heat or electricity millions of residents are witnessing one of the coldest winters in more than 30 years.
Texas is pretty freaked out right now guys. So instead of enjoying my valentine's day or streaming.. I'm literally defrosting my house. -_-— KottonKandi (@KandiedGaming) February 14, 2021
Dripped the cold water last night but for some reason my hot water is frozen solid. Hopefully my lines don't burst. 😏😞😓💀😭 pic.twitter.com/MM76GKGop6
From icicles hanging from the ceiling to frozen toilet water, residents have been sharing bone-chilling images that will literally send shivers down your spine.

My dog’s water bowl inside my kitchen lit up with a flashlight. No rolling blackouts. Zero electrons since 2am last night, almost 24hrs. Frozen pipes. Houston Texas. Why not in the federal grid?
