Been on generator since 6:00 am this morning just east of Georgetown. I love all the news outlets explains the grid is just fine. Grid is just fine, itís now everything down stream of it. Like saying the truck runs just fine but you ainít going anywhere because the transmission is trash. Ha

I am super thankful of all the linemen out there doing what they can to get things operational. Those guys brave some of the nasty weather.

If you canít drive down the road and see that our line system is trash then I donít know what to tell you. It is a tangled mess of epic proportions with trees not maintained. It is the infrastructure itself.

Not so much the infrastructure as it is companies not willing to spend the money to trim trees. You could make do with a piece of wood and an insulator. But when they wont spend the money to keep trees properly trimmed it doesnt matter. They will not do it. I was at oncor for several years and its pulling teeth to get them to trim anything.

On the back of my property trees are growing under, through and above the power lines. They can't get do them because of two creeks.

My genny is standing by, but we don’t lose power much. For the last ten years or so Cherokee Co-op has been pretty diligent about trimming their rights-of-way so no limbs are overhanging. We are on the edge of the ice but we do have some hanging in the trees. Roads were good when I went to Tyler early this morning, but N of Tyler seemed much worse.

They have gone from:

"Oncor is aware of an outage impacting your area. At this time, we do not have a restoration time but are working quickly & safely to restore service."

To:

"ONCOR: Your area has extensive damage to equipment due to icing on trees and impacts to power lines. Crews are working as quickly and safely as possible to assess damages and make repairs. Restoration work will continue tonight and tomorrow and you may consider seeking alternate accommodations."

Little over 30 hrs with no power here in south Hopkins county. Ice covered trees broken and fell over everywhere. Glad to have plenty of propane run most of my important stuff. Gas logs for heat, our cook stove is propane, and water heaters. Just cranked the generator to keep all that deer I just processed and put up, froze in the deep freeze. It was still frozen, but figured it was time to get it back to deep frozen! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

I knew that it was overkill, but the price was too good to pass up. I didn't want gas or propane, so I got some bids for 25Kw diesel units. $21,000 plus tax plus the switch and wiring. I paid $9500 for this one (actually 33Kw) and did the work myself. A little over $13K for the project. John Deere 46HP diesel engine. I heat the block to about 110 degrees during cold weather, so it starts instantly.

I was thinking this morning.

I pay a fee per kwh to Oncor to maintain the lines.
Seems to me they are taking my money and not doing much of anything.

Wonder why nobody has filed a suit against them?

A few years ago dad had to show the Oncor people where the line was 1/4mi down the road because it was so grown up they couldn't find it. And if my memory is right it was DAYLIGHT

When I was a kid they came by about once a year and made sure the power lines were cleared out
You might see them once every 10yrs now

Luckily my power has only gone off a few times but has came right back on every time this round.

Generator is on standby though

I am retired from an electric co-op. We always had a tree trimming program going on. Our main problem was home owners not wanting their trees trimmed or right of ways maintained. The old rural customers understood the need to trim trees due to past power outages. The new land owners moving to the country did not want their trees trimmed or want the tree trimming crews on their property. Trees that touch power lines actually are contributing to line loss of electricity flowing through the system. In other words, trees absorb power from the lines just like the meter at your house. The power purchased from the main supplier is total usage. The power recorded from electric meters is always less then total usage. The difference is due to line loss from trees and other obstructions and normal loss in an electrical distribution system. The total usage bill from the supplier still needs to be paid so the consumer pays for the line losses passed through to their electric bill. An active tree tree trimming program is necessary to keep non-income losses to a minimum and keep rates stable longer. The other advantage to an active tree trimming program is less outages during inclement weather. If the meters are spinning during cold weather, the utility is making money and customers are happy and warm. Outages cost a lot of money with the cost of lineman on higher wages due to overtime, equipment breakdowns, getting stuck, dangers of getting electrocuted, etc. The lineman crews are the toughest and most dedicated people I’ve known.

So the next time you are contacted by your electric utility to trim trees on your property, you will be helping yourself, your neighbors and your community in minimizing future outages. If you see trees in the lines on your property, contact them and they will come out and trim them.

This! I was working outage restoration last night around Boerne. Lots more ice there than in ,oat of our Territory. Itís really hard for us to get people to understand how much of a necessary evil it is for us to maintain Our existing right of ways, or clear new ones for new construction. Lots of members still off there due to accessibility issues due to iced, downed trees, and manicured yards that we need to drive 30,000 lb trucks across to get to some poles.
