Both the utility companies and ted cruz thought the terrible natural disaster in Texas was an okay time for fun and profit. They are bad people…there I go again judging others without looking for redeeming qualities. Busted.
IF you have a variable rate utility plan this might be the time to reconsider. I do not like to give advise but if someone is offering you a deal to save you some/usually little money upfront with the risk of, in this case, a $17,000 electric bill run away, hang the phone up, you probably should not take them up on their offer.
If this last Texas disaster does not turn Texas Blue I will be disappointed. If it does I think we should take those profits back from the utilities and find Abbott, Paxton, Cruz, Cronyn, etc. a nice corner of the earth to secede to.
