LIkely the rich had better lawyers fighting the power company and it's desire to trim the trees in their ritzy neighborhoods..


So when the heavy snow brought down the tens of thousands of trees in their neighborhoods, with low density of houses per mile...they were the last on the list to get restored.

Makes perfect sense.

Maybe next time they'll not fight the power company so hard on letting them trim the trees away from the power line.

Happens in downtown Dallas and the first ice storm takes out power to those neighborhoods fighting the most to stop tree trimming.....and of course, those folks scream bloody murder, and when the power lines are put back up, those trees are really really trimmed.....before the lines go back up......look like half trees. Or no trees at all.

It's sad that intercst has to dump on the folks..but he's a cheap shot person. I know people there who were without power for five or six days. Not fun.

Heck, in rural VA, the power went out for 4 days one time in the middle of winter. Good thing I had a big woodstove to keep the house from freezing and a fire place, too. And a pile of wood. When you live at the end of a power line, with 2 houses per mile....you are last on the list to get your power back......wasn't fun, but, heck, with some flashlights, burning wood, a few extra blankets, eating meals out on the way home.....I got by. That was 30 years ago when I was 25-30 years old, so it wasn't all that 'inconvenient'.
