This February of 2021, a major winter storm made its way through the U.S. central plains, setting alltime records for low temperatures across the country. One of the biggest impacts of the storm happened here in Texas where people across the state suffered extended outages of electricity and water. It was one of the worst winter weather events in history, creating lossoflife and economic impacts that will take years to unfold. Many are still recovering from the storm and will be for years to come.
