It's only peaking at 33 degrees C/91 F, and that's midday. Pretty weak if you can't even deal with that without AC for a few days.

It's pretty miserable with the humidity levels you get in Houston. And it doesn't cool off much at night either.

My family was once without power for a week during a major winder storm. It sucked but we didn't whine this much.

It's just a matter of preparation. Having no power in !dixie summers blows but I don't know what these twinks expected. It's been 15 years since a hurricane hit Houston

Irma took our power out for like a day and a half in Miami and I wanted to die every second of it all. The massive army of linemen from all over the state and country working round the clock was incredible to see though and I think the only more criminally underappreciated profession is paramedics.

Linemen are men's men. Dudes drive all night and then work their butt off

Redoitor needs to be sucking Centerpoints gock not the other way around

Wahhh wahh they fixed the neighbies first wahh

Mf you admit you bought perishables the weekend b4. Ur pr-slurred and know nothing

Centerpoint doesn't care if we suffer for days

I'd like to see hm say this to a lineman working probably 12-16 hours a day in the same heat as the redditor sits with nothing useful to do

I say this as someone without power luckily we have somewhere to go in town :marseythumbsup: next time I'll fix the generator

Redditors manage to whine about things that actually do suck in such an offensive, child like way.

Down in the thread somebody asks what it's like to have to sleep with no A/C and the response is this long winded analogy about drowning with no water or some shit. Jesus fricking Christ. "Why wasn't someone else more prepared to take care of ME?" "Everybody who works at the power company is obviously a meanie lazy jerk out to get us!" Thinking like that is for sure the way to get real change to improve your infrastructure.

I highly recommend getting one person in your house for hurricane people. Makes sleeping with a/c much more tolerable

On one hand redditors are being whiny, over dramatic, and histrionic as usual. On the other hand, being stuck for days without AC in the middle of July in Texas sounds miserable. The Euros ITT could never comprehend. It hit 75 degrees for a few days in Bongland for a few days a few years ago and it turned into a mass casualty event, they would never be able to make it in Houston

If their neighbors across the street have power, why are they not spending the hottest part of the day over there with their cat? The few times we had days long power outages everyone on the block always pooled their resources.

Ohโ€ฆwait, they're redditors. They'd rather b-word online than knock on their neighbors door.

And honestly we didn't always have a/c either. You just spend the hottest part of the day outdoors in the shade. Your body adjusts, it's fine. Losing food sucks, but unless you have some medical condition the AC part is a luxury and not a need. (Does being a redditor count as medical condition?) :marseyhmm:

Kinda funny though that my grandmother cooking over a hot stove with no AC every day in August was tougher than them. These fricks would die if they ever worked in a warehouse.

Their neighbors are probably cleaning their yards, chopping up trees, cranking beers and helping each other. Hurricanes are great forced social bonding

I unironically have fond memories of our longest power outage because the block basically turned into a commune for the week, with everyone off work and helping each other

I go that sub every once in a while and the posters seem to think they must always have a fully stocked fridge at all times. When that wind storm came through and they were fixing all the power lines, a bunch of people were crying about how they instantly went out and bought $400 worth of groceries only for the power to go out again.
