All Things Work Together For Good . . .

Many things are happening now in this country and around the world that would tend to make some people doubt if the end result will be “good”. In God’s plan, not everything will end up in a situation that someone might define as good, but God knows why He is doing things this way and we have just got to believe that. Why? Because the end result will be very good, indeed!

Most of us, if not all, won’t be able to see how, for example, the persecution and deaths of vast numbers of Christians in the last 2,000 years could possibly be good. However, God is in control and He has permitted that persecution and those deaths to happen as part of His perfect plan. And God knows that the persecutions and deaths will all work together with other events so the big picture end result is good. We just can’t see it from our earthly perspective.

God’s Word says: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” (Romans 8:28-30)

For our good . . . let’s see . . . we, the wicked, sinful, totally undeserving are chosen by God to get resurrected bodies that are spiritual and imperishable, raised in glory and power. And, after that, we get to live for eternity (get that? for eternity), living with Jesus and God, where Jesus has prepared places for us . . . in a place encrusted by gems with gates made from giant pearls, and streets of transparent gold lighted by God’s glory. A river of the water of life, clear as crystal, comes from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street and on either side of the river is the tree of life. There will be no more tears, pain, crying, sorrow or death, but, I believe, God’s peace, perfect joy, thanksgiving, praise and worship, and many other things that are totally beyond our imagination.

Yes, I would most assuredly say that things will have worked together for our good no matter the result of specific events leading up to the final conclusion.

What about all the things that cause us to say “oh, woe is me”? Is there much of a comparison between those things and what God has planned for us in the future for eternity? Thinking of that, shouldn’t it be a bit easier to follow Paul’s advice and rejoice in Christ? I mean a really deep-down, heartfelt Rejoice!


Now, taking a closer look at “all things work together for good” . . .

When Christians say all things work together for good, we are referring to a portion of one of the most quoted verses in the New Testament, Romans 8:28: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Or, as the KJV translates it, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

God works all things together for good—both His good and our good. As God is glorified, His people benefit.

In Romans 8, Paul contrasts a life lived in selfish pursuits (the flesh) and one lived in league with, or in accordance with, God (the Spirit). He impresses upon readers that our sovereign God is all-knowing, all-wise, and all-powerful.

We who love God can trust His goodness, His power, and His will to work out all things for our good. We journey together with Him.

The promise that God works all things together for good does not mean that all things, taken by themselves, are good. Some things and events are decidedly bad. But God is able to work them together for good. He sees the big picture; He has a master plan.

Neither does the promise that God works all things together for good mean we will get all that we want or desire. Romans 8:28 is about God’s goodness and our confidence that His plan will work out as He sees fit. Since His plan is always good, Christians can take confidence that, no matter our circumstances or environments, God is active and will conclude things according to His good and wise design. With this knowledge we can learn to be content (see Philippians 4:11).

The fact that God works all things together for good means God’s plan will not be thwarted. In fact, we are part of His plan, having been “called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). When we trust God and His way, we can be sure that He is active and powerful on our behalf (see Ephesians 3:20).

God knows the future, and His desires will be accomplished. “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please’” (Isaiah 46:10). Even when things seem chaotic and out of control, God is still in charge. We sometimes worry about what’s happening to us because we do not know what is best for us. But God does.

The principle of God working all things together for good is well illustrated in the Old Testament account of Joseph’s life. Early in Joseph’s life, Joseph’s jealous brothers sold him into slavery. In Egypt, Joseph rises to a position of responsibility. Then, he is unjustly imprisoned and forgotten about by his friends. God gifts him the ability to interpret dreams, and through that ability Joseph is once again raised to a place of honor and power. When drought forces Joseph’s brothers to seek food elsewhere, they travel to Egypt and encounter Joseph, who eventually saves them from starvation and grants them a livelihood in his new land.

Throughout his life, Joseph trusted God no matter his good or bad circumstances. Joseph experienced plenty of bad things: kidnapping, slavery, false accusations, wrongful imprisonment, rejection, and famine. But in the end God brought things to a wonderful, life-affirming conclusion. God blessed Joseph’s entire family through those painful circumstances and through Joseph’s faith.

Paul’s life is another testament to how God works all things together for good. Paul suffered shipwrecks, beatings, imprisonment, murder attempts, temporary blindness, and more—all within God’s plan to spread the gospel (see Acts 9:16 and 2 Corinthians 11:24–27). Through it all, God was steadfastly working to bring about good and glorious results.

After promising that God works all things together for our good, Romans 8 concludes with the wonderful fact that God trumps everything that comes against Him and those who belong to Him. Christians are assured that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? . . . No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:35–39). God’s love is everlasting, and His wisdom is infinite. It doesn’t matter who or what attempts to thwart God’s plan; no one and nothing can. God will work all things together for the good of those who love Him. Our decision to align our will with God’s and to always trust Him will be rewarded.

On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Maranatha!

May God bless all of us – even the annoying ones.

Especially the annoying ones. Not only do they need more God in their lives to counteract their personalities, they’re likely to meet their Maker sooner….

Thank you for this encouraging post, bakocarl. There is so much that we don’t know, and the things we would do might prove disastrous. But, as you say, “[God] sees the big picture; He has a master plan,” and nothing can separate us from His love. There is great comfort in this.

Someone mentioned on yesterdays Open that they heard that an entire school board had resigned after the leaked video of them mocking parents…

apparently this is true…but these parents no longer have faith in whoever will be replacing them…

Liberalism (progressivism, socialism, communism) ruins EVERYTHING it comes into contact with…as we are now seeing on a massive scale…(not that we didn’t see it before)…

TheseTruths

One thing that struck me when I heard a few of the things they said was how immature they seem. There aso was not a sign of class or kindness or circumspection. They seemed supremely confident that they had the upper hand and could say and do what they wanted.

While I hope they gain some perspective, until people like that do, we have to defeat them soundly, at every level. We can’t have entire school boards and other “leaders” who are crass, inconsiderate, self-centered people.

James O’Keefe has had the right idea all along. And even though this was a hot mic and not an undercover operation, they were caught just the same.

And doesn’t it seem like government is absolutely filled with these kinds of people? They don’t view themselves as public SERVANTS, but as our rulers.

Yes! It’s a big problem. They think they have a right to rule us and cheat to get into power.

suzyqster58

They see themselves as entitled. They seem to believe they are higher up on the pyramid then the rest of us. The upbringing of these people show up in how they treat others. But since shame has been outlawed I dont think there condescension will stop any time soon. Paul calls these ones out in blunt descriptives. We live in perilous times.

cthulhu

Such is the nature of man. Our Founding Fathers left us a strong bulwark against such in the Constitution. How have we allowed it to become weak? How can we rebuild it and strengthen it?

James says they don’t fear anything, anything, except being exposed.

cthulhu

James O’Keefe has been exposed many times over.

His message is to not do in secret what you can’t do in public — because he will make your secret works public. And for the rest of us, his message is: “don’t fear the light — BRING IT!”

TheseTruths

It’s hard for me to imagine not fearing prison time, but maybe they think they would never face that. But exposure would (or should) result in a loss of position, power, prestige, reputation, and the cash cow that feeds so many. They can act shamelessly while they feel they have the upper hand, but the shame of exposure terrifies them. Bring it on!

mollypitcher5

A great thing about their petty tirade is that it’s offensive to both conservatives and lefties. They weren’t buffering their smacktalk with usual snowflake rhetoric about being scared of dying of covid. Basically they insulted both sides of the aisle.

This Basic Math Shows How Wind Energy Failures Contributed To Texas’s Deadly Power Loss
We can learn from what happened in Texas if we have a serious and necessary conversation about renewable energy. But will we?

https://thefederalist.com/2021/02/18/basic-math-shows-wind-energy-failures-contributed-to-texas-deadly-power-loss/

Why did Texas lose power? Math — apolitical, non-ideological, and sometimes cruel math.

During such an extreme cold for which Texas is mostly unprepared, the demands on the electric grid exceeded its output capacity. The majority of Texans heat their home with electricity, and, under typical circumstances, it makes sense. Why spend money to bring natural gas heat into the home when it’s very likely you can go an entire winter without turning it on? As temperatures plummeted, Texans turned on and turned up the heat.

But something else was happening. The extreme cold was impacting all electricity production. All of it: coal, natural gas, nuclear, but most of all wind.
The Department of Energy tracks electricity generation hourly. On Sunday, Feb. 14 at 8 p.m., this was Texas’s electricity makeup in megawatt-hours:

  • Natural Gas: 43,798
  • Coal: 10,828
  • Wind: 8,087
  • Nuclear: 5,140

The next day, during the height of the storm at 8 p.m., this was the makeup:

  • Natural Gas: 30,917
  • Coal: 8,023
  • Wind: 649
  • Nuclear: 3,785

Why the delta? Natural gas, for starters, experienced a shortage. Those Texans who do have natural gas heating their homes turned it up, and what would have been available for electricity generation, went to homes. Similarly, nuclear and coal were adversely impacted by the cold. These are failures, plain and simple, and they can be explained away as anomalies in an unlikely, black swan scenario.

But what of wind power? Wind turbines froze and were rendered useless. Here is the real reason for the failure and I’ll prove it with an apples-to-apples comparison.

. . . The difference is wind. So serious is this percentage of the electric grid coming from unreliable wind power that more than two years ago, the Chair of Texas Public Utility Commission called lack of dependable electricity reserves “very scary.” Yet, Texans still saw three coal plants removed completely from the equation, even as a back-up, a safety net.

Wind Energy Fails: Grading the Reliability of Energy Sources During the Texas Power Outages
Written by Mitchell Rolling in Energy on February 19, 2021

https://www.americanexperiment.org/2021/02/wind-energy-fails-grading-the-reliability-of-energy-sources-during-the-texas-power-outages/

Commentary surrounding the Texas power outages has been wide-ranging, making it relatively difficult to make sense of what happened.
Here were the major factors contributing to the energy crisis:

  • Because Texas doesn’t “winterize” its electricity infrastructure, around 45 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity became inoperable the morning of February 15, 2021, due to extreme weather. Included in this capacity was:
  • 30 GW of fuel-based energy sources (mainly natural gas) that became unable to produce electricity due to frozen natural gas pipelines and safety mechanisms that shut down nuclear and coal facilities to protect against extreme cold temperature. This is nearly 30 percent of all nuclear, coal, and natural gas capacity on the Texas grid.
  • 15 GW of wind energy that could not generate electricity due to wind turbines freezing. This is roughly 50 percent of all wind and solar capacity on the Texas grid.
  • Because neighboring states and Mexico were also experiencing energy emergencies of their own, in addition to the independent and isolated nature of the electrical grid in Texas, electricity imports were largely out of the question to mitigate the significant loss of generating capacity.

Renewable energy advocates were quick to come to the defense of wind and solar energy sources, while others were quick to blame them for the energy emergency that unfolded in the Lone Star State.

With so many competing narratives floating around, it’s helpful to see the data. As such, we created a reliability grading scale designed to judge which energy sources came to the rescue, and which ones were largely no-shows, during the statewide power outages that rocked Texas.

PowerLine does a summary of this information here:

POSTED ON FEBRUARY 20, 2021 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN ENERGY POLICY
WHAT HAPPENED IN TEXAS

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/02/what-happened-in-texas.php

As everyone knows, some natural gas pipelines froze, contributing to the blackout. However:

Remarkably, natural gas still generated electricity at 38 percent of its total capacity throughout the energy emergency – providing on average over 65 percent of all electricity generation through Monday and Tuesday – despite roughly 30 GW being inoperable due to frozen pipelines holding up fuel.

It was the “green” energy sources that failed to show up for work:

The three worst-performing generating assets, on the other hand, belonged exclusively to renewable energy sources: solar, hydro, and wind. Had Texas been even more reliant on these energy sources, as renewable energy advocates around the country desire, the energy crisis in Texas would have been even worse.

This chart shows the contribution to total electricity production made by each energy source over the course of the blackout. Solar was irrelevant, and wind virtually irrelevant as well:
comment image

The fatal flaw of wind energy is that it only works, at best, 40% of the time. When the wind doesn’t blow–as it tends not to during times of bitter cold–wind turbines are useless. The fact that some wind turbines froze up is interesting, but far from the main point.

In case you missed it, wind energy scored an F in all three categories – the only energy source to perform so poorly during the power outages in Texas.

As such, you can rightfully label wind energy as the most unreliable energy source during the Texas energy crisis. While it may not have been the primary cause of the power outages, it certainly wouldn’t have done Texas any good to have more wind capacity on the system. In fact, more wind capacity would have only made things worse.

cthulhu

My understanding is that natural gas pipelines didn’t freeze; they lost power. And this goes back to an environmentalist decision to run the pumps on the pipeline with electricity rather than with motors fueled by the gas in the pipe.

Propane, itself, condenses at -40. Nothing in Texas remotely approached that. Natural gas, which also contains things like methane (-257), ethane (-127), etc. won’t even condense at such temperatures.

Insistence that pipelines rely on far-off electricity rather than the existence of fuel to be pumped to power the pumps would set the system up for truly systemic failure.

pgroup2

^^^^this^^^^

cthulhu

If trees fall on all the electric lines needed to pump your natural gas, it is not a failure of natural gas — it’s a failure to design your natural gas to not need electric.

smiley2

👍

michaelh

This is in keeping with what was said on the American Though Leaders video.

Several people have called “BS” on the natural gas freezing.

Condensation and icing is a different issue related to weatherization – but that’s also discussed further.

cthulhu

I’ve mentioned that I belong to a club that builds small versions of engines from blocks of metal for fun. One common type of engine to build is the “hit-and-miss” engine. Essentially, this is an engine connected to a….oh, wait, this is a technical term… “BIG-ASS flywheel”, where the flywheel runs at a certain speed. If the flywheel is above the speed, the engine opens all valves and just pumps air between the input and the output. If the flywheel is below the speed, the engine runs the valves, injects fuel, and sparks to produce force. They typically sound like “shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf-putt-putt-putt-shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf-shuf”.

I belonged to this club for years thinking that they (and the originals) were toys.

Then I saw someone use one. I forget what for — maybe a grinder?

While it’s running open, there might be 13 cycles out of 16 that don’t consume fuel, don’t need a spark, don’t change valves, and just spin…..and 3 cycles out of 16 keep it running……but when you put a load on it, it can fire every time. The more you load it, the more powerful it is. It is an ingenious way to keep power on a leash, but available by command.

These were used in all sorts of remote applications — for irrigation, to run balers, for pumps and machine tools. They required very little to keep running, but were available at need.

And they were loathed and depised by treehugging idiots because electric consumes 0 energy during its downtime.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎NUCLEAR MAGA😎

Even with my limited knowledge of the subject, I realized this during my popsicle state.

If it takes electricty to pump the nat gas to generate the electricity AND there’s NO electricity, WE ARE FUBAR!!!! 🥶🥶🤬🥶🥶

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Sounds like a design straight out of Microshaft.

michaelh

American Thought Leaders goes into this more. Here’s the replay link from yesterday:

A couple important take-aways (there were many):

* The CCP has been “investing” in Texas land and installing wind farms and solar capacity.

* ERCOT nearly brought down the entire Texas grid for MONTHS by their mismanagement on Sunday night

* They immediately began rolling blackouts at the last possible moment to prevent major harm to power generators and the grid

* They chose one of the worst possible locations to begin rolling blackouts – the Permian region of West Texas, the origin of most of the natural gas production and power generation, literally blacking out natural gas equipment throughout West Texas and deepening the power generation shortfall (!)

Also, ICYMI from yesterday, b/c this is important to the story via a great Texan, Sidney Powell:

Venezuela has been infiltrating Texas through criminal activity (drug trade), the legal oil industry (CITGO), and buying their way into Texas politics!

https://www.securefreesociety.org/research/weaponizing-networks-part-one-venezuelas-asymmetric-attack-on-texas/

As I’ve said many times, Texas residents and Tea Party folks have been struggling just to get control of the Texas GOP for over a decade, much less the Texas State Legislature which has been locked in a state of RINO-Dem colluded gridlock. Someone is pulling back the curtain.

Texas looks good economically b/c it literally is doing NOTHING, whereas other states are regressing due to leftist operators. But the political gridlock is doing no one any favors. Despite the attempts to “turn Texas blue” the Rio Grande Valley had a 55 point swing in 2020 and those dreams are evaporating – the Valley knows that Oil Jobs are critical to the Valley’s economic prospects, and they voted for Trump in number NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN – the biggest upset on November 3rd that hardly anyone knows about. (Right now the best jobs in the valley are in teaching and law enforcement.)

Rolling Blackouts, Schmolling Blackouts, Blah!!!!
Sunday night, Monday morning actually at 2:21am, I happened to be awake when the lights went out. I tried to call Centerpoint, they recognized my phone number, but ended the call because no one was available. I went to the outage map, put in my phone number and they didn’t recognize me. The map said I was fine. Finally I went to CP twitter feed. They started posting ERCOT warnings around 11, LEVEL 1, then 12 LEVEL 2, then 1am we were at LEVEL 3 with ROLLING BLACKOUTS. Being suspended, I was unable to reply to their tweets. Basically, I had NO way to contact my energy provider to tell them my power was out. Twuck Fitter. I finally went to bed hoping somehow, someone would report my area’s outage. BUT THEY ALREADY KNEW. On Monday at 9:45 they finally announced that if your power was out, then it was unlikely it was coming back on that day.😱😭
35 hours later the power came on for 11 hours. I was able to warm my house from 45 to 60, then power went out again for hours. My rolling blackout continued for 3.5hrs OFF, then 2.5hrs ON for the next day and a half.
CP’s definition of rolling blackouts is OFF from 15m-1hr max. IT WAS ALL BS!💩💩💩 I didn’t hit their definition of rolling blackouts until late Wednesday night, when OFF finally dwindled to 1hr.
And I am one of the lucky ones! Some had power off up to 55hrs. AND NO WATER!!!!
I only lost water for 3 hours on Monday, thank God, it came back on once we started to decend to 20. You MUST run water at 20 and below or pipes will freeze. Sooo many of my neighbors are on Nextdoor begging for plumbers. Home Depot and Lowes are packed, out of supplies. NO bottled water left, except for the Sams in Corpus Christi.🙄 That’s 4hrs south. All food spoiled. On Sunday I bought $60 worth of meat alone, other groceries, thinking I was going to hunker down for a week. Buh Bye. Didn’t even snap about water, fortunately I already had 1 case.

HEY CREEPY, WHERE IN THE HELL IS FEMA????????? It’s been 5 days now.

Didn’t POTUS always have them pre-staged???

FEMA Sends Wind and Solar—No, Wait, It’s Sending Diesel Generators—to the Texas Winter Storm Zone – PJ Media

They sent 60 generators. SIXTY for the WHOLE STATE!!!

AND YES, Patriots are asking POTUS and others to start a fund for Texas!!

One of our town’s two wells lost power, so we’ve been on low pressure and Boil Water Notice for days.

Our rolling blackouts were pretty mild and worked. Power went off every hour for about 30 minutes or so, except for the first night of the storm when power was out for a couple hours.

Sorry to hear you had such trouble. Many friends and colleagues have experienced just what you describe.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎NUCLEAR MAGA😎

What an ordeal, G-Ma! Glad you’re ok. ❤❤❤

singingsoul1

We had not far from me natural spring and it was closed for no reason a couple of years ago. This would come handy at a time when water is scares. We have lots of natural springs and could be tapped into where I live.

grandmaintexas

Very fortunate to have springs available.

singingsoul1

Yes and no. Where I live has a stone bed and it is a hill . My home’s foundation is set in carved out stone. We no longer get water in the house because we fixed it but most homes do. All the springs ..:)

grandmaintexas

It sounds beautiful, though. Substantial.

wheatietoo

I have been worried about you, Butterfly.
*hugs* {{{{Bfly}}}}

So sorry to hear about your ordeal!
Glad you made it through.

And yeah…where the hell was FEMA!

We were without power for about an hour, which is nothing compared to what you had to endure.
 😔 
The temps were below zero though…and it didn’t take long for the house to start getting cold.

Friggin windmills!
We have them up here too — and they were all frozen up.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎NUCLEAR MAGA😎

Luv U Miss Wheatie, was worried about you too and all that ice. Glad you’re ok. 💖😘🤗 Windmills are stoopid!!

grandmaintexas

I did sign up for Sen Hall’s newsletter.

grandmaintexas

“Because Texas doesn’t winterize…”

Bingo. Texas is a very wealthy state. That the legislature does not provide funds for even such things as sand/salt for roads, let alone for winterizing our energy sources, is a crime.

Politicians in the large cities, as well as north Texas, must devise a plan to provide for winterizing, even if these plans are only used every few years.

Citizens, meanwhile, need to prepare on their own. Generators, wood stoves, propane when possible, and having a deep pantry and household goods to tide you over in an emergency.

Deplorable Patriot

Being from the Midwest, I just don’t get the not being prepared. Our transportation people spend the summer stockpiling road chemicals, and prepping. I know we have minimal renewables in this state. Illinois has more. Yes, it’s expensive, but even in mild winters it’s better to be safe than sorry.

And, maybe, this is why the warnings were out to be sure to have two weeks worth of food and other supplies. It does seem that Texas was targeted.

grandmaintexas

When you have 1 bad winter every 7 or 8 years, and the event lasts a week or less, people tend to not prepare. Human nature.

We get almost no snow, and Temps below 20 are super rare.

jamcooker

I remember when I was a child, being at my grandparents’ house in West Texas a couple of winters at Christmas, and it was COLD with a little bit of snow on the ground.

Ironically West Texas is much more likely to get cold winters and blizzards.

TY That’s the part I’m familiar with. My Dad’s family was all in west TX.

michaelh

I think the rural areas, people are more prepared, but there is less urgency around cold weatherization and it is common to defer it.

Consider that an A/C unit replacement starts at $5,000, and Texas summers are hard on them, people tend to prioritize needs around the summer months. Texas heat is extremely dangerous and takes many lives every season. Winter extremes tend to be very short lived so people choose to stick them out when they happen.

Government and contractors are more likely to cut corners, too.

But there is another aspect to all this – the urban and suburbanization, combined with massive net in-migration, particularly from other southern states and California.

The major cities in Texas – Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin – are all deep blue. The ideology of blue areas is not inclined toward individual resilience but upon reliance upon common services. When something goes wrong, the solution isn’t to get out and fix it, but to complain like Karens about some service provider or the government not doing its job, as if they were able to pivot like magic.

My experience from the N. Texas area is that there is demographically a mix of both types. A lot of people who are self-reliant, or significantly resilient, and a lot of people who just are not. These are those suburban moms who won’t vote Trump that the MCM likes to talk about – the ones that are bought into the narrative and are still scared of COVID. Yes, they exist, they are real, and if you dare check on social media they are noisy and drown out all logic and reason. I can’t hardly use LIFELOG without getting an irrational beat down from them even when I say nice things about people.

Keep in mind too that North Texas has a lot of cultural and ethic diversity – it is hard to appreciate how much diversity without visiting. This is especially true of African American and Hispanic communities, but we also have large pockets of Koreans, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian, etc. Each culture has its own ingrained habits (manners) of how they respond to an emergency. People were very critical when COVID broke and large Hispanic families responded by have large outdoor gatherings with food and breaking social distancing rules. Indian immigrants are quite comfortable during Texas summers and you often see them taking evening walks regardless of the heat; but many of them lack the shared cultural knowledge for resilience during cold snaps. One of my co-workers did not take winterization steps at his home and nearly had broken pipes, for example.

jamcooker

Regional differences also play a part in preparedness. One summer, DH and I were visiting my grandmother in west TX, and she was complaining about her family room add-on leaking. DH went up, took a look and bought a bucket of roofing tar. He fixed it, told her it wouldn’t look pretty, but it wouldn’t leak anymore and it didn’t. We however, live in the PNW where it rains a lot and DH is very particular about roofs.

One house we lived in had a shingle roof, and DH wanted a better roof, so he had a concrete tile roof put on, and was a newer type roof. The only problem with it was that it needed a lot of heat to cure properly, and guess what we don’t get. That was a huge mess to deal with. A new product that was probably researched in CA and then there was a class action lawsuit that was resolved after a few years. Lots of help /S.

One thing that bothers me is the lack of housing that is geared for different geographical areas. All the newer housing is cookie cutter, and looks the same all over, and is totally inappropriate for some geographical areas. All due to “code”, you know……

michaelh

Yes that’s exactly right, and it’s getting worse as the builders are trying to move toward building more premium homes – which are built just as poorly as the old ones but are laid out as if they are mansions. Very energy inefficient!

Gudthots

A few years ago I spent time researching “building envelope” concepts because I’ve got some issues with my ~60 yo stick built house. Builders in Texas are exploring other styles of building that are more efficient and the local inspectors seem to be on board, so there is hope.

I’ve also been interested in the use of long tubes buried below the frost line (northwestern states) to get that normalizing effect of running outside air through the tubes before using indoors or in greenhouses. The soil temps being around 70 degrees F all year.

grandmaintexas

Well said. This is very, very true. The demographics are much more reminiscent of the east or west coast.

suzyqster58

Here in the PNW most of us grow up with being prepped for weird weather. I remember well the Columbus day snow and wind storm of 69.it was cold ,very cold but we are used to wearing coats inside sleeping in our socks lol that year the milk would freeze in the pail on the walk from the barn to the house.
If your not acclimated to harsh weather it can be nasty on the body. the huge snowstorm we had in 2019 was bad. we had so much damage to our house it was unreal. but we were just naturally prepped with gennys, brick stove top outside to cook on and plenty of propane. when you grow up with nasty winters you just get used to the possibility of things going sideways. My Dad would have 10 cords of wood or more on hand at all times.
We cannot depend on government to help us we must go back to our roots of independence, Its for our own good to do so.

grandmaintexas

Amen.

We had 3 cords for the winter this year. We usually only need 2. I should’ve gotten a 4th, but we had easy access to more, so it was OK.

You are a pioneer. 😁

suzyqster58

lol, your also a pioneer! My Dad taught all 5 of us girls a lot about things we need and things we want. things needed are more important then wants so i have come to learn. right now we heat with the propane but we have wood stored just in case we need to pull the old wood burner out of the garage. hubby and i are both feeling old age and I love living in this old place , its small easy to maneuver and no stairs! the big plus is both sons live here on the property so they help with animal feeding and mucking. YAY for Pioneers!

grandmaintexas

Girl after my own heart. 😘

jamcooker

Very true about the weather here. We were lucky this year with the last windstorm, had a couple of trees blow down, but nothing got damaged. We ended up with a shy 12″ of snow last weekend, but it was already starting to melt on Sunday. One thing we did when we moved to our current location is DH converted the gas logs to gas fireplace inserts which have been a god send at times. I wanted to convert one fireplace to a woodstove insert, but he didn’t want to deal with chopping wood anymore. (His age was creeping up on him.) Our first two homes had baseboard heat, but we heated with wood stove inserts and I loved it.

suzyqster58

I like the freestanding stoves myself just for cooking on in a pinch! its so strange that just 45 minutes up I-5 it was a terrible mess with those winds and snow. down here we had wind and rain like usual this time of year.

jamcooker

We had the sort of inserts that you could cook on, and did a few times.

After I got Microshaft Upgrunt to certify my Win8.1 system as “ready for flight”, I proceeded to put the 2020 tax program on, load the proper state, and bring forward the previous years’ returns. Took me less than an hour. By which I can only conclude that Microsoft code-monkeys are about 1/8 as competent as H&R Block’s software staff. Oh, wait, I didn’t have to look up anything on the internet or do any CLI BS — make that 1/100.

cthulhu

I did have an interesting digression while loading the tax s/w. I’d downloaded it onto my Linux computer and had to sneakerware it over there…..and thumbdrives weren’t working.

Somewhere in my recent past, I’d loaded and enabled a package called usbguard. It was a surprise, but I like it — my computer will only load and access USB devices that I individually approve.

I approved a thumbdrive, copied the Win installer, and carried it over and used it. Smooth.

I was disappointed last year to find that the business form of Block required WIN 10. The 1040 was okay, didn’t need 10. Didn’t find it out until Oct as I’d filed an extension. Ended up DL the forms from IRS and manually entering everything, which takes about 3 X as long. Ugh.

IDK if this is true. She is only 9 yrs younger than he is. He was born 1942 and she was born in 1951. They met in the early 70s after she was married and an adult. Biden’s oldest son was born in 1969 and she would have been 18 even if she had babysat him as a newborn.

MAGA Mom

Have dreamed of visiting the far north since childhood to witness this. Closest I have come is seeing the Lights while I lived in MT but what I saw there was nothing like the vivid colors of the far north

Valerie Curren

When we lived in Northern, MI we saw the Northern Lights on a number of occasions. When I was a child my dad carried me on his shoulders to see the multi-colored lights (red, blue, green, white, & yellow I think) & that is the only time I’ve seen multi-colors, & it was like 50 years ago.

About 15 years ago I was letting the dog out at like 4 am in Metro Detroit & saw green Northern Lights–I’d NEVER seen them in the Detroit area. I called my parents to wake them up to see & then I got each of my kids up & carried them outside to see the aurora & shooting stars. All 4 of them were so sleepy that NONE of them remember this momentous event but it’s one I’ll likely not forget.

The undulating curtains of shimmering green & random pulsing fingers of light were truly glorious (though not as spectacularly bright as in this video). It made me wonder if Jesus was about to return for it was such a glorious sight. I hope you get to see some someday in person, but there are probably many photos & videos online to enjoy.

If I still had access to my Pinterest stuff I had many such heavenly glories in a couple of my files. They are such a natural wonder & cause Everyone to look up & rejoice!

Which reminds me that the last time I saw the Northern Lights it was at my parents’ Northern, MI Cottage. We all went down to the beach & marveled at the subtle white lights that sometimes appeared like glowing fog & sometimes like fingers of light. My son Josiah started singing worship songs & he & I kept at it for quite a while–a very special time!

MAGA Mom

amazing! I saw white and green and they were small in comparison to what I see from the far north. Nothing like what you describe from northern MI or like I see in the videos. Sounds so lovely. If not on earth then I will see similar wonders in Heaven. So lovely.
