25 insane photos and videos that show how brave Texans are dealing with the coldest winter in decades

For a state that hasn't experienced anything this severe for years, they're trying their best to make something of the situation.

Residents of Texas are used to the blistering heat of the midwest with the occasional snowfall during the winter months. But now, the entire state is experiencing one of the coldest winters they've seen in decades. And it wasn't just the cold that was getting to people. Millions were left stuck in their homes without electricity and heating, facing severe shortage of food and water. And as getting things back on track seems to have been a slow process, many took to social media to share just how bad things got in the state due to the sudde snow storm.

And their troubles didn't seem to end there. According to NBC News, the National Weather Service warned residents to be prepared for another major winter storm that is expected to come from the Lower Mississippi Valley into the mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
