    Oh yeah for sure. I used to build log homes up in NC, so overshooting on prewiring is a habit now.

    Beryl’s remnants are blowing by us here in Ohio so it’s in the low 70s

    I think it’s back to the 90s tomorrow

    Not that this would ever happen in Texas, but i wonder at what point, as hurricane and tornadoes become more frequent and stronger, will power companies finally realize it would be cheaper to bury the lines then repair them every few weeks? Probably never and they will just raise our rates, i guess is the realistic answer.

    My power bill is 50% higher monthly compared to last year. It is too damn hot, and too expensive to run the AC enough to actually cool down.

    108 today 112 tomorrow

    you know what’s funny? It was 104 yesterday and I was outside and going “oh this isn’t so bad. Its no 110+”

    This is what happens when you get used to it

    I understand how people can live in Phoenix now

    They will never bury the lines are you kidding?

    Number would go down.

    I'm not sure if its the power company doing it on their own, or the city/whoever making them, but this absolutely has been happening here in FL. They're going around converting from raised to buried lines in many areas due to all the power outages from storms (thunderstorms or hurricanes).

    the last round of DOE funding i saw specifically required companies to include in their requests an analysis of resiliency for continued climate change

    no idea how stringent the merit review was in making sure those analysis were more than, it'd cost X more to run it underground, vs regular repairs

    My town in NH requires buried house lines. Power companies generally aren't going to bury without municipal support as it's a massive capital charge and they're insanely fast at changing out poles/overheads at this point. As an expense they can just tack it on bills pretty easily versus the burying investment.
    You also run into a pile of potential easement issues and water table issues as you can't bury in a high water table. All this to say - utilities will do it if a city is committed with them, as that mitigates most of the risk.

    I think that no one in the Texas government should be allowed to have air conditioning until everyone else in the state has their electricity restored.

    My wife left a sugar free Pepsi sitting in her car and it almost literally exploded. Thankfully it is sugar free so the cleanup is not that bad but still. Damn it is hot.

    This time there ended up being no tornado anywhere (last time there was a touchdown, wheee), but Barre flooded again. Exactly one year after last year.
