If you've been following the news at all these past few days, you know that Texas is in the grip of a historic cold snap. The state is in a crisis situation as major power outages and frozen and broken water pipes are leaving millions without heat and running water.

Of course, homes and infrastructure in the state are not designed to withstand the cold; snow remains a rare event. But right now, temperatures have remained below the freezing mark for days. The death toll has climbed steadily this week, and for many residents the situation remains dire. Fortunately, forecast call for warming temperatures starting on Sunday.

In the meantime, people are getting by as best they can, and as always happens in these situations, proving to be devilishly ingenious.
