On the most recent episode of his podcast, "What's Up Fool?", comedian, and good friend of the Morning Show, Felipe Esparza gave a reason as to why El Paso wasn't hit as hard as the rest of Texas with this winter storm. According to the comedian, who will be in town on March 6th, El Paso runs on natural gas- after eating some good old Chico's Tacos. Check out the stream below- fast forward to about 33 minutes in to hear Eparza's reasoning:

Is it possible that our natural gases are what's making sure that our power stays on? No! Of course not! As delicious as Chico's is, it's just not possible.

As of right now, El Paso is done with the wintery conditions. The snow lasted a beautiful three days- it melted, and now we're starting to see the sun shine through the clouds. Meteorologist Nichole Gomez, of our partner station KVIA, is predicting we'll be back in the 60's and 70's by this weekend. It was nice while it lasted. That is not the case for our friends elsewhere in Texas.

While the rest of Texas is covered in a deep freeze- us here in El Paso are, thankfully done with the snow and ice. We weren't hit as hard as the rest of Texas because we're not part of ERCOT, which you can read all about here. And no, frozen wind turbines are not the cause of outages across Texas.
