Texans take farm animals home, including wild ones, to keep them warm during a blizzard
Recently, news from the United States has flooded the information space, but now most of them are devoted to the southern states, and in particular Texas. The fact is that at the moment the state is under the yoke of a blizzard. Residents and the municipality were not ready for the cold, which is a record for the area. 10-20 cm of snow and -10 ℃ does not sound particularly scary for us, but for the inhabitants of Texas it is a disaster, as people’s uninsulated pipes burst, and the dramatically increased demand for electricity forces electric companies to disconnect people from electricity.
But not only people suffer from frost, but also animals that are stuck on farms, in zoos and just on the streets. Some Texans did not abandon the animals to their fate, and literally took them to their homes. Now in Texas, you won't surprise anyone with a calf in the house. Bemorepanda collected some pictures.

Texas residents continue to struggle with the effects of the devastating cold, and much of the eastern half of the United States continues to face snow and ice. About 78 million Americans have been affected by bad weather, and although the Texas power outage that left them in the cold and dark in homes has been completely remedied, people say the shops are either closed.
Nearly 300,000 homes and businesses in Texas were without electricity on Thursday, until it was completely resolved on Friday morning.
About 13 million people now face water disruptions, broken pipes and system failures, US officials said. Austin and San Antonio have been sending hot water warnings since Wednesday.
Meanwhile, difficult weather conditions across the country have had serious implications for the pandemic: some shipments of Covid-19 vaccines have been delayed, and some clinics have had to cancel their vaccination schedules. The Houston Department of Health said it would resume vaccinations this weekend.
