Amid frigid temperatures, millions of Texans are without power. The mayor of Mansfield tells NPR the cold isn't fully to blame. 'When you've not had power for 3.5 days, … you begin to question whether [the blackouts] are rolling at all,' he said.

Can you guys ask austinenergy why my friend has been without power for 7 days? She is in Forest North Estates. Her pets are shivering and she’s running low on food. Did they really believe the rolling blackout lie? They’re going to re-elect Cruz. Should we start shunning Texans like we do Trump supporters?

as someone who was without power for almost 40 hours i can attest it was not a ‘rolling’ anything! it was a massive fail! The black outs aren't rolling. No way that they are. Someone really needs to answer a basic question. Are citizens without power because lines are down, or are they without power because the power company is unwilling to bear the cost of purchasing power to turn everyone back on?

I’d trust a Republican as far as I could throw them And as a nerd we’re not known for our upper body strength AbbottFailedTexas AbbottResign TedFled TedCancunCruz Yep. Many in my family in three different cities, Fort Worth, Dallas and Austin, lost power Monday and they all got it back today. That’s not a coincidence.

Wake up Texas! Youv'e been had! And Cruz takes off to Cancun lmao
