ERCOT Issues Severe Cold Weather Watch

On 2/6/2014 at 16:10 ERCOT issued a Watch for the severe cold weather beginning to impact the ERCOT region and a media appeal for energy conservation.

Consumers asked to conserve electricity due to extreme cold, limited generation

AUSTIN, TX, Feb. 6, 2014 – The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), grid operator for most of Texas, is asking electric consumers to reduce electric use from 5 p.m. today through noon on Friday, Feb. 7.

“With the cold weather that began last night, we already saw electric demand close to our winter record this morning,” said Dan Woodfin, ERCOT director of System Operations. “We are expecting cold weather to continue through tomorrow morning’s high demand period, and some generation capacity has become unavailable due to limitations to natural gas supplies.”

Consumers can help ensure the system is able to continue serving current power needs by taking the following steps to reduce demand on the system tonight and tomorrow morning:
¶ Keep your thermostat as low as is comfortable, preferably no higher than 68 degrees.
¶ Turn off and unplug non-essential lights and appliances.
¶ Avoid running large appliances such as washers, dryers and electric ovens during peak energy demand hours (6-9 a.m. and 4-8 p.m.).
¶ Close shades and blinds at night to reduce the amount of heat lost through windows.
¶ Large consumers of electricity should consider shutting down or reducing non-essential production processes.
¶ Businesses should minimize the use of electric lighting and electricity-consuming equipment as much as possible.

ERCOT peak demand this morning exceeded 57,000 megawatts (MW) and could reach or break its 57,277 MW record before the current winter weather leaves the region.

“This is a precautionary measure to help ensure we can maintain overall reliability through this high-demand period,” said Woodfin.

Boy Scouts Honor Whitesboro Hero Charlie Baum

“Life is good. I do not harbor any animosity for the things that happened to me. Would I do it all again? Yes, I sure would. We’re the luckiest people on earth. You’ve got to go through something to appreciate it.” ~~ Charlie Baum

These words seem surprising coming from the man that enlisted voluntarily in the Army Air Corps, endured the 100 mile Bataan Death March, survived forty-two months as a prisoner of war, and weighed eighty-six pounds when he was freed. Whitesboro native Charles Baum, World War II veteran, was the epitome of honor, courage, valor, and fortitude. Lest the sacrifice of this hero be forgotten, a local Boy Scout is on a mission to create a lasting memorial to Mr. Baum.

Charlie Baum Charlie Baum Life Story
by Jaquita Lewter

More than sixty years ago, Charlie Baum found his world turned upside down because of events in a place most Americans had never heard of, a rocky peninsula on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, which separates the South China Sea from Manila Bay. It is called Bataan.
Water Street

Charles Edison Baum was born on July 19, 1917, in Whitesboro to George Campbell Baum Sr. and Callie White Baum. He is a great grandson of Captain Ambrose B. White, who founded Whitesboro in 1848. He was the youngest of three boys. G. C., Jr., and Al Baum were his older brothers. He also had a half-sister, Nettie Baum Ashley.
