The entire country is getting slammed with an arctic blast this week.
Millions upon millions of people are separate from power from the Canadian border all the way down to Texas. Places that rarely get snow are seeing 5 to 10 inches this week. I feel poor for all of the people chilly in their houses with electricity or running water. It’s a major catastrophe plus there is no telling how many people will be dead by the weekend, as grim as that sounds. Some people are flocking to whatever few local companies certainly have electricity. Many cities are seeing outages in every borough, then this makes it nearly impossible for a lot of people to get any kind of heat, even if they leave their house. My apartment is still separate from power, however we’ve been told that it’s due to down power lines. While every one of us wait for the electrical company to restore power, we’ve been flocking to local companies while I was in the afternoon to get a tiny bit of respite. There are many stores plus companies with electricity, however not all of them have their heat on high. After going to see the library, post office, grocery store, shopping mall, plus multiple local restaurants, by far the warmest business is the Coca-Cola shop about a block away from our house. They are using their radiant flooring to the max. They keep the heat coming from the radiant floors up to 77 degrees or higher. This resulted in an increase in traffic plus resite for the little Coca-Cola shop. The additional profits certainly cover the increased heating costs for the tiny cafe.
