From We Are Austin.Com:
"The Electric Reliability Council of Texas ordered utilities to rotate electrical outages to compensate for a power shortage linked to the extreme cold weather."
It's dang cold all over Texas. Actually, it's dang cold all over America. Sure, Chicago has Austin beat in the cold weather game but Chicago is used to this crap. Here in Austin, people wear flip-flops in February. We don't take kindly to temperatures of 15°. A threat of snow practically shuts this mutha (the city of Austin) down. Seriously. Schools close, businesses close, people freak the hell out.
To make matters worse, the entire state of Texas (from what I understand) had to grin and bear it while the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) flipped some switches and blacked out parts of the grid for 30-45 minutes at a time. They called this procedure "Rolling Blackouts." Alarm clocks did not go off, people got stuck in elevators, traffic lights went-a-flashing, and your heater shut down.
When I got home, I found our electric bill (pictured above) on the kitchen counter. It was wet. Apparently, Cooper wanted to express his displeasure at the "rolling blackouts." He has grown to like the heater. Take it away, and dude gets "pissed." hahahahha!
He climbed up the couch and over the ledge and onto the counter and he relieved himself all over our electric bill.
See, there is the edge of the couch and the ledge and the counter and the Dale.
As a bonus, I present you with Dale demonstrating the sign for the word "potty"
