"It’s hard to see the beauty in any of this snow through the pits in our stomachs, shivering animals, no running water, and no power for over 100 hours at the farm. We’ve all been doing our best to keep the eggs warm and the animals fed, but this egg got away.

Here’s the inside of a frozen chicken egg.

It’s times like these we look to our northern farmers and old pioneers for guidance and encouragement. We imagine our forefathers over the last 166 years going through similar conditions never having known the comfort of a lightbulb. We take these as lessons but it’s hard when you’re actually going through it.

We will not be on the roads this week and will not be supplying our beloved club members, markets, and chefs any eggs this week. We wish you all safety and comfort during this difficult storm."

#21 If you do that here in northern Minnesota that sh#t will freeze. As I recall, 100 proof liquor freezes at -25F. The liquor in the photo is 80 or maybe as high as 86 proof.

We just had 2 weeks of subzero temps. Morning lows ranging from -42F to -28F.

Spring is coming- woke up this AM to a balmy -12F. It's supposed to get up to 29F this weekend. T-shirt and shorts weather.

Raymond,
The amain problem is that long ago, Texas opted out of federal regulation and national energy plans. So, rather than being able to pull in electricity when the local power grid fails, they are not connected. There are essentially three power grids in the United States. The Eastern grid, the Western grid and then there's Texas. Other states go through cold and power failures from time to time, but they can pull in electricity generated in neighboring states until things are fixes. But Texas wanted to remain its own country, and this is the result. Remember the Alamo? Remember this disaster!

Rube,

ENRON - rings the bell? So obviously being connected to the grid didn't help Governator's state at all... Every Fed. monies have lots of strings attached, so ...

Rube, That does not belie the complete line of BS that wind power is a viable alternative to fossil fuels.

Mally,
Not a 100% replacement but it helps to keep the climate out of f###s way. And you of course can f### everything by mismanagement and use the disaster caused by your failure as a blame to socialists in your opening line at Qanon church prayer. Save me from myself please. yeah right.

They cheaped out when they got the wind generators. Didn't see the point in adding 'extras' like heating units etc. They froze. But maybe someone saved a million dollars 10 years ago.

I’m guessing Beto is working on his speech to blame cold turtles on Republicans too.
