If you’ve been following the news lately, you’ve probably heard that the state of Texas has been hit by a wave of extreme cold, with temperatures dropping all the way down to single digits in some places. Texas hasn’t experience cold this severe since 1989, and naturally it caused a whole heap of problems for millions of Texans. And I’m not just talking about slippery sidewalks and driveways.

The recent winter storm not only caused massive power outages all over the state, but also caused water pipes to burst, damaging buildings and people’s belongings. According to The New York Times, as many as 23 people died due to storm-related injuries. See how the Texans dealt with the sudden winter storm in the gallery below!
