    Would all those California companies contemplating move to Texas, rethink their move now? Pacific Gas and Electric may turn out to be the devil they know !! When ElPaso was able to buy electricity from elsewhere, the other cities weren't able to do that -- isn't this weird? So many questions and lessons.

    The poor residents who had pipes burse as the water pressure got up, and the thaw came on, would now face FUNGUS problem as the temperatures go up. Perhaps the real estate prices might stabilize, and may even come down a little.

    Once upon a Lyin'Ted is now Flyin'Ted.

    Natural disasters like earthquakes, fires or winter storms, or utility companies and infrastructure ill-prepared to deal with such disasters do not impact those contemplating a CA-> TX move.

    For a long time, when asked if we were contemplating it, my response used to be a silent 'when h** freezes over' : ) and here we are ... record low temperatures, frozen pipes and lots of contemplation. If we end up with a Longhorn in the family, it'll be close to a no-brainer......

    whatever..

    Slowly inching back to normal. Everyone has something to deal with. Thankfully everyone is healthy and we got through it and that’s what matters. All of us either lost power or water pipes burst or both. Very few people who had the good fortune of staying whole through this.

    It ain’t our first Rodeo! We deal with broken pipes all the time. You don’t know the TX sun. Dampness and fungus isn’t a huge problem hereabouts.

    Don’t disregard the Aggies and Mustangs too. They all have a lot of school pride and band together.
