Because of the record cold weather, the Texan’s fan froze at home. His photo went viral

The winter storm that hit the United States led to school closures, power outages and a sharp cold snap in some parts of the country.

Texas is one of the most affected states, partly due to the fact that such frosts are rarely observed here. Temperatures in the central and southern regions usually range from 20°C (68°F) to 24°C (75°F) in February, but yesterday fell to -22°C (-7.6°F).

In order for others to have a clearer idea of what is happening, Thomas Black, who lives in the suburbs of Dallas, posted a spectacular photo on Twitter, which immediately became viral.

The picture, apparently taken in the corridor of his apartment building, shows a fan with huge icicles hanging from the blades, while the walls in the background are covered with thin layers of ice.

This is how cold it is at my Apartment.

As a Texan, yes, I’m certainly not built for this. I don’t even care.

«That’s how cold it is in my apartment. — signed Black Frame — As a Texan, I’m definitely not cut out for this.»

This is not the only picture published by a man in social networks. On February 15, Thomas posted a photo of a local swimming pool, frozen, according to him, so much that you can even walk on the ice.

«Yes, we are not used to ultra-low temperatures. But I have never seen the pool in my house start to freeze, » the Texan noted.

The frozen part of my pool is now solid enough to stand on.

After the footage attracted the attention of thousands of Twitter users, Black announced that he plans to organize restoration work in the coming weeks, and urged everyone who is ready to participate to send him a personal message.

More than 4.3 million people across Texas were left without electricity as high demand for electricity led to a power failure, and indoor temperatures quickly dropped when heating systems in homes began to fail due to a lack of insulation in buildings.

President Joe Biden has declared a state of emergency in the state.
