I’m in Dallas, and the while my family and I were well prepared, most in my immediate neighborhood were not. The biggest failures that I noticed were despite most homes having wood burning fireplaces, they had no wood. This led many to retreat to their cars to stay warm, but were unable to get gas as most stations didn’t have electricity. The last thing, is most people were completely dependent on their phones for news, the cell towers were overloaded and text became the only way to communicate. Which was later a problem as some cell site generators started to fail, some carriers also went dark.
