Apparently retired plumbers & out-of-state plumbers have been encouraged to get or renew licenses.

Plumbers from out of state are heading to Texas to help repair winter storm damage

I would imagine it's very difficult to get help. Finding a plumber who can come in even in the best of times can be difficult. And many workmen/women involved in house improvement have had extraordinarily long wait lists. I have the impression that plumbers prioritize emergency jobs, but here you have a whole state in a state of emergency.

I know we have had some horrific flooding/tornado (unheard of in my city and neighbouring Quebec) in the past few years and their struggles with rebuilding. ❤️ To everything going on there.

In college, I had an electric blanket. About half a year after I graduated & was finally able to have my first house kitties, I had to throw out the electric blanket because there was no way to safely wash it and the blanket was inundated with kitty fur. But I didn't need the electric blanket anymore because I had kitty heat-generators.

Bandit is very accomodating and sleeps right between the two of us. That is, when he'll be up on the bed at all - he tends to prefer the rug or floor by the bed.
I have a king sized bed but I like to sleep on my side. Oscar thinks he is the most important dog in the world and deserving of all my attention. He’ll pin me down and expect me to lavish attention on him. My youngest will respect him with everything but fools him by crying for me on the floor so he can come up and cuddle on the side of me that is free. It’s crazy that sometimes I am right on the edge of falling out of bed.

When I broke my leg (again) my boyfriend went back to my house from the hospital to stay with Sadie overnight. He fed her and let her out and then said it was time for bed. She ran in and jumped up in the middle of the bed and waited. He didn't want to disturb her, so he slept from corner to corner on top of the covers. I said all he had to do was say "scooty over" and she would have. She always slept right next to me completely under the covers, but got in and out of the covers all night, if she got hot or cold.

< On the subject, took this picture yesterday when it was 58*. Only 43* right now. Most of it is still there.

I think the first four or five in this compilation are funny particularly if it has anything to do with animals. The rest...meh. I don't think Texans will forget this winter for awhile: https://youtu.be/emG-CxTGY8Y

My friend in Austin finally got water restored to his kitchen and downstairs half bath. He’s still waiting for the pipes to be fixed on the 2nd floor where the full bathrooms and laundry are.
