I'm only getting about 10 minutes on to every 2 hours off. If it's rolling, it should be rolling. Not isolated.

This is from my husband about suddenlink.
Just because your power is back on doesn't mean that the main power source for suddenlink's system that feeds your area is. There is battery back up but it only lasts so long and with the cold the battery's won't have a very good charge on them so they probably won't last with all the demand.

Come to find out, the director of BTU lives in my hood. Who knew?


Interesting. Maybe when things warm up a bit it's time for a couple of open records requests.

My parents live in CS and haven't lost power at all. Same goes for my brother who lives in Wylie.

I hope you're kidding. This is what is straining the system and causing these outages.

We are in south CS, Williams creek subdivision. We had the rolling power outages until 4:30 and we've been out since then. Glad to know some folks in BCS still have power. That's a good sign.

BTU outage map shows no outages in Miramont or Traditions. Gee I wonder why. Mine has been off for four hours after rolling outages starting 2 am.

Yeah, same here. Wondering if they forgot to put south CS back in the cycle.
Getting chilly in here. I guess I can live with it for a while, but I would appreciate a bump so my pool equipment can run a bit.

Been out in west bryan near expo for about 5 hours. Getting cold in our house! Send some of those rolling blackouts our way instead of solid hours of nothing. Ha!

Your blower motor works on gas, too? If so, where can I get one?

If someone's blower motor si the only thing running, then they arent causing the power problem.

This every hour blackout is BS, and only back on for 30 minutes before it cuts off again

If this becomes the norm, I am putting in a wood burning stove. My brother-in-law has one that heats his whole house up in the mountains of NC.

I don't have tv & miss the updates. Has a number been given that one would call to get a ride to a hotel or shelter? I have no other heat source & am concerned about tonight if power goes off for a long time. I live in town (Bryan) but I don't think I could drive safely on these roads.

Apparently CSPD is running on backup power.

From the outage map, BTU is down to 19k customers out, from a high of 23k.

Everything off 1179 past Steep Hollow Road has been down since about 2:30 am. I'm sitting in my chair with a blanket over my lap.

My neighbor has a CPAP and said that with that alarm and his security system reset, it went off 9 times overnight. I got up at 6:00 and it's been off three times since then. I have a fireplace and plenty of blankets; charge every device when it is on, so I'll be ok. It's my pipes I worry about.

But the fact that our power system can't accommodate this demand, however unique, is disturbing.

South College Station, but on BTU...

Woke up at 4:30AM to the power coming back on. Outage map said we had been off since 3:00AM. Went out again around 5:00AM. Hopefully it will come back again soon.


Came back on around 7:45. Went off again at 9:40.

It might do better in the summer, but right now the solar panels are covered in snow and ice, and the wind turbines are frozen. Not sure how much of the total supply that is.

And unlike the TVA or up in the PNW, they can't just call up the dam operators and tell them to open it up all the way.

Doesn't help that we had to shut down Big Brown, Sandow, Gibbons, and I don't know how many others.

Burton Creek area. Power went out about half a dozen times, usually 10 minutes, a few at 40. Old uninsulated house so it got cold fast (had therm set at 66). Went to bed in clothes and hat and a ton of blankets. Suddenlink was out when I woke up but back up by 10 (which is a relief when you have a critical virtual meeting today).

My sense is tonight will be worse and this will taper off into Wednesday.

Copperfield. We went out at 2 for an hour, 4 am for an hour and at 6 it went for 3.5 hours. Came back at 9:30. I'm madly making coffee and grinding beans for the day. Priorities. We have a gas stove and gas fireplace so we can cook and the living room is warm.

I've got 5" on the deck. Our second 5" in three weeks. Crazy.

Call 211 to see if they have any information. If not try Bryan/Brazos County dispatch 979.361.3888. Post back here to let us know if you find a solution.

I'd really like to know if my area, west of airport, is actually going to come back on anytime soon. I know it's going to come on as soon as I have the generator setup...
