An August tweet in which Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas mocked California's "failed energy policies" recirculated on social media on Tuesday as millions of Texans were without electricity because of a rare and severe winter storm.
As of Monday, about 154 million Americans were under some form of winter-weather advisory, CNN reported.
About 3.6 million Texans were without power on Tuesday afternoon, according to the outage-tracking site PowerOutage.us, as the state's infrastructure struggles to handle the inclement weather.
Over the summer, California experienced wildfires and extreme heat waves that strained the state's power infrastructure and caused outages.
Now, Texas' power grid has failed; the state's infrastructure is largely unequipped to handle lots of ice and snow and freezing temperatures. »
