Due to the record cold weather, a Texan's home fan is frozen. His photo went viral

A winter storm that hit the US has resulted in school closures, power outages and cold snap in parts of the country.

Texas is one of the worst-hit states, in part due to the fact that such frosts are rare here … Temperatures in the central and southern regions typically range from 20 ° C (68 ° F) to 24 ° C (75 ° F) in February, but dropped to -22 ° C (-7.6 ° F) yesterday.

To give everyone a clearer picture of what is happening, Thomas Black, who lives in the Dallas suburb, posted a spectacular photo on Twitter, which immediately went viral.

The photo, apparently taken in the hallway of his apartment building, shows a fan with huge icicles hanging from its blades, while thin layers of ice cover the walls in the background.

This is how cold it is at my Apartment.

As a Texan, yes, I & # 39; m certainly not built for this. I don & # 39; t even care. pic.twitter.com/FMt8imglJp

“That's how cold my apartment is. — signed by Black Frame — As a Texan, I am definitely not made for that.

This is not the only snapshot posted by the man on social media. On February 15, Thomas posted a photo of the local pool, which he said was so frozen that you can even walk on the ice.

“Yes, we are not used to ultra-low temperatures. But I've never seen the pool in my house start to freeze, «said the Texan.
