On Dec 23 2022, over 1,000,000 Americans were without power from winter storms.
Then, last week a second freezing "Global Warming" winter storm hit.

EV power sources are still not ready for prime time.

At one point, more than 400,000 Texas homes and businesses were without power, though that figure had dropped to just under 215,000 by Friday afternoon, according to poweroutage.us.
As of Saturday night there are still about 1,700 outages, affecting about 68,000 Austin customers, spending a fifth day in the dark.

Austin originally said it would restore all power by 6 p.m. Friday.
“It’s unacceptable that we don’t have the infrastructure so that we can get through a winter storm that lasts three days,” said a North Austin resident.
“You failed us! You failed us completely”

"Progressive" Austin Texas Electric vehicle owners are still "powerless" ...unless they have GASOLINE powered generators.  LOL!
