  • As a Texan we were complaining because there were many people without power and we were on a boil water alert. We're not used to cold weather haha, that being said I was not born here, but it was indeed very cold, I believe at one point it got down to -12 or a little colder even. God bless and this was an awesome video! Subscribed.

  • You are correct that our infrastructure is just not set up to handle this kind of cold. Officially, what caused the power outages was that, first, the windmills started freezing and the solar panels don't work (those two furnish 25% of our power) when covered with snow and ice so that put more load on the generating stations which were already stressed by the increase in power demand. They started doing rolling blackouts which blacked out the Permian Basin which is where most of the natural gas comes from so many of the gas fired generating stations shut down. This exposed a basic problem in energy management. So we have all learned a lesson in preparedness.

  • Man that's a nice solid old truck! Sucks that someone cut the grill for whatever reason - spare tire carrier? Those wheels are nice, and are the older version without trim rings. I'd say that Ford used those from the mid 1970s until perhaps the mid 1980s when they painted the wheels argent/gray and added the trim rings, and went to the chrome center caps. The ones which take the trim rings have an indentation/groove around where the 'spokes' meet the rim, which accepts the trim ring. The old ones don't have that groove, and came in white, and when used on certain Free Wheeling models, they were painted yellow! I have a later wagon wheel (missing its trim ring) for a spare for my 1977 F150, and I have a set of Ford slotted mags with those same black centers waiting to go on.
