  • This is intense. Glad I am watching this 2 weeks later so I know you made it to Florida safely. I can't believe you kept going. I live in Canada and winter driving is my least favourite thing.

  • Most vehicles are Front Wheel Drive, putting weight into them, is counter productive, as the weight of the engine itself is what is keeping the tires in full contact with the highways. If you have an all wheel drive vehicle, then weight again can be counter productive, as all wheel drive is done with sensors, and is both Front wheel drive, with rear wheel drive assisting. and then when the sensor feels a slip on any tire, the engine transmission sends more power to the slipping tires, and less power to the full contact tires.

  • Also in Canada there is a saying. Just because the car starts, doesn't make it a good Idea to get in and go somewhere. LOL

  • In Canada we have winter tires, or all season tires at a minimum. In Canada, our cars are equipped at the dealerships with block heaters, so the engine blocks can stay warm in colder Weather. In Canada, we drive out fearlessly in -30 Weather no problem. In Canada, We stay home during the big snowstorms! As much as possible. Our Water lines are buried, and come up to heat tapes around them , then get insulated before being covered up in our houses. In Canada, we are prepared for winter weather. The one thing we can't handle here in Canada, is HOT Hot hot weather. Anything above 80 Degrees F, is too dang HOt for us Canucks. Sorry Americans are dealing with the Northern DeepFreeze, We had it much worse than you got. We went to 40 Below for an Entire two weeks, and then it warmed up to 30 Below C And lemme tell ya, we celebrated the Warmer weather with glee!

  • Try living like that for 6 months up here in sunny Canada. One week of cool air and the US turns into a third world country. Maybe it's time to blow up another third world country so you can stimulate the economy. Cheers from Canada.

  • I do not understand why again you keep driving on through some very very bad conditions. I know you are not stupid. But this was asinine!!! Truly. I am so pissed. You are traveling in one of my most favorite areas of the country right there and south down in Big Bend. You could have a great vacation for over a week cruising that whole area. So much to and do. In the spring time the wildflowers are something. Migration of Birds. Places to swim and hike and eat for cheap. Last trip I made to Fort Stockton a cold front blew in at 6 pm on a late May evening. It was a force. Our motel room was facing into it. The whole night our exit door was whistling and banging around it was so bad. Thank god the motel had the best beds and linens. It was luxuries. Stepped outside to freezing temp. In May! I only had a sweater. The narrow bridge in Junction is over the Llano River is the place 2 years ago that had that flood that rose so high and came in fast it carried people and homes away. It has a long history of floods like that in that town. But, I keep going back because of the great time that can be had down in the Llano River tubing every summer. Bourne. TX ...I call it like Sanders....Bernie. Bernie, TX that is just how I say it.

  • Someone may have mentioned this, but back in Ft. Stockton that oil rig is a Pump Jack. It operates the pump in the oil well that the oil rig drilled. I might be sounding a smart ass, but its known that so many confuse all this that they even see a real oil rig drilling they call it fracking and that is BS that has caused a lot of issues.

  • I'm a Minnesotan. The worst storms are the ones that start out raining then the Arctic wind comes and the rain starts freezing. The other bad snow storms are when it's warmer in the spring and it dumps snow and the thick slush is really slippery. The easiest snow storms are when it's really cold and just snows with no slush or rain. But then that sucks coz it's usually blizzardy and areas of the highways get blown over with thick snow drifts

  • I know that a lot of people do not take Alex Jones seriously, and although i don't agree with him 100% of the time-this time- I do. He's right. He IS RIGHT. They pulled this weather in, manipulated the jet stream and created the storm, and the Globalists used Biden to do. They are going to do it to the rest of us sooner or later. If you think they aren't you are fooling yourselves. WAKE THE HECK UP! www.infowars.com/posts/smoking-gun-joe-bidens-dept-of-energy-blocked-texas-from-increasing-power-ahead-of-enduring-storm/ The even larger over-arching question is: WHO IS IN CHARGE of our Country now? Have we been over-taken by the Chinese, and or the Globalists cabal, and we just don't know it yet? COME ON PEOPLE, COME ON..PLease share this information out with anyone and everyone. This is the time to have guts, to stand up or you will be stomped on. Stand up for your children. STAND UP NOW AND DON'T SIT DOWN, Have some guts, don't be afraid to speak up and out. PLEASE? CHina did this to their own people in 2009 and they said they did it to show them who's in charge. Do you really think that they wouldn't do it to us?

  • OK, now add deer running in front of you and you have Wisconsin. I got a little lost on a small island in our lake last night. It was dark, I have some night blindness, and the roads aren't plowed good enough because it's a remote neighborhood. Of course two deer thought it prudent to run across the road before my car passed because that's how they do. Hit my brake and skidded a bit, anti-lock brakes kicking in. I thought, "I just want to go home." When you see one deer, assume there will be more and stop the car or slow down a lot. They tend to travel in groups.

  • politico.com: After a major winter storm knocked out power in Texas almost exactly a decade ago, federal regulators called on the state to fortify its grid against deep freezes. But the federal government had no authority to mandate such measures. Wood says this is typical of Texas’ approach to federal oversight. Even though the federal intervention was “relatively benign,” Texas still didn’t want to deal with it. “I just threw my hands up in the air,” he says. Even at the height of the crisis this week, Rick Perry said Texans would rather go without power for days than deal with federal energy regulations. Never mind that Texas readily accepts federal help when disaster strikes: So far this week, Abbott has made at least two official requests to the White House for federal aid.

This was on Route 84 in Connecticut and as soon as I crossed the state line into Massachusetts the snowstorm stopped and the road was clear. That was mind-blowingly weird! 16:35 etc. that bas-relief sculpture of Davey Crockett keeps reminding me of Jedediah Springfield for some reason
