17 Images That best Illustrate the Crazy Arctic Cold That Has Covered Texas

Cold weather has hit countries differently this year. As some are coping with light snow and soft weather, some places like Texas have been having more difficulties due to the temperatures falling below -10C (14F) bringing a lot of troubles with the power grid as it could not cope with the demand for electricity, therefore leaving millions of people in the dark.

The last time when temperatures were this low was in 1989. Due to the snowstorm, it’s estimated that at least 23 people have died. In many of these places across the southern and central parts of the United States, these devastating conditions arrive just once in a generation.

And if you’re asking how come that this normally boiling state is suddenly freezing over, according to the US National Weather Service (NWS), this is down to an “Arctic outbreak” that originated just above the US-Canada border, bringing a winter snowstorm as well as plummeting temperatures.

Below is a collection of images that will illustrate better the situation that these affected areas are going through right now.

#11 This Winter Storm System Is Testing Us In Many Ways. Pushing Us To Our Limits. Creating Challenges We Didn’t Expect And Requiring Us To Make Tough Decisions

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.
