Demand is too high. We ramp up in the summer with the older and less desirable power plants to keep up with summer demand. I guess it’s not that easy to just turn those back on for a 1-2 week stretch of weather.Serious question, why are you having blackouts? Are they cutting power on purpose or are lines going down and redirecting?
YUCK, keep family and pets warm..Pool parts can be replaced people can'tDemand is too high. We ramp up in the summer with the older and less desirable power plants to keep up with summer demand. I guess it’s not that easy to just turn those back on for a 1-2 week stretch of weather.
We are also the nations largest wind producer, which is great, until the dang things freeze up with ice. 50% of the wind turbines are offline currently, according to some news reports.
8 degrees and 9" of snow on the ground this morning in Longview, Tx. Burrr!
No rolling blackouts here - yet. Thank you Swepco.
So far all my equipment is fine, but my pool is starting to form a very thin layer of ice on top. I estimate maybe 30% of the surface is iced. smh....
It might be. Where is the equipment in regards to the water line ? If you equipment is below the waterline you will siphon water from the pool until the two are equal.The pump has been draining for a couple of hours though so I’m a little worried about how much water will come out of the pool. It’s not coming from the drains at the bottom of the pool is it?
Do any of you have generators that can keep things running during the blackouts? Had a 3 day power outage this past summer and was very glad to have had a generator to keep the food cold and the pool running.
