Can you believe it? Texas had temperatures colder than Alaska. Listen folks, we are NOT ok. Texans are freakin' out left and right. Not because of the cold, frigid temps but because all of our infrastructures can't handle it!!
We went days without electricity. Many still without in our area. Our house INSIDE got into the 30's because we didn't have electricity for so many days. Our pool, destroyed. Cracks and busted pipes everywhere. But, we're surviving. Taking it day by day. We ended up spending the night at the warehouse because it got electricity back before our house did! The craziest thing is that it was a -4 this week and will be in the upper 60's next week. For real, not even kidding on those temps.
It's been wild but I'm happy to say that most of our staff is back to work today (Thursday, Feb 18th) and it's slowly creeping up to about 30-32 degrees today. By Saturday we will be in the 50's so all this mess can melt and we can get onto spring!
Please know, that we are working as fast as possible to get orders out. We've been out of the office for 5 days shipping nothing. We have nearly 5,000 orders to get out. We will be working this Saturday shipping as well but keep in mind, even though we are shipping it's going to take some time for USPS to get caught up as well. PLEASE BE PATIENT! There's no need to call and be ugly to our customer service gals. We are doing the best we can with the situation we've been given by good 'ol mother nature.
For those that have experienced this winter blizzard ... anyone else tired of experiencing all of the historical events for the past year? 🤣
Pretty sure the only ones that enjoyed playing in the snow were my dogs.
