The Dallas Morning News

Just a pretty spring day


An idyllic April day with West Texas temperatur­es in the 50s and mid-80s in the rest of the state. All is well, until — EMERGENCY! An expected cold front did not arrive quite as soon as the forecaster­s thought, and the front did not produce quite as much cooling as they expected.

That, like, never happens, right?

And with that blip in the weather pattern, the proud Lone Star State finds itself again on the edge of a crisis.

Welcome to 21st century, Texas. Years of Gov. Greg Abbott’s leadership, the Public Utility Commission he appointed and the humorously named Electric Reliabilit­y Council they supervise appear to have created another brand of New Normal.

Have a great summer!
