You're back???

@Bddpaux, I'm confused I thought you were leaving the project? Good to see you're still editing here for the time being... BigKrow (talk) 11:52, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

No -- not leaving; let's call it a 'coffee break' of sorts (but not this morning!) - Ha!--Bddpaux (talk) 11:54, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Heavy Water, sorry again and thank you! BigKrow (talk) 17:49, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
I managed to move this page out of mainspace. I had thought the article had been overridden by a move; I didn't realize this had started with the talk page being moved while the article was left at its old title (I had actually seen Severe weather ravages portions of Texas, but I thought it was a different article since there have been a few with similar names recently). Do the authors involved want to rename the article to "Severe weather effects portions of Texas", or this talk page to "Talk:Severe weather ravages portions of Texas"?

I am ears deep in work stuff right now -- go with 'effects'. I can easily do another source, but no earlier than tomorrow morning. I am in a major crunch at work right now. I don't know what happened with that Talk page.--Bddpaux (talk) 19:20, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
I screwed it up somehow srry... @Bddpaux BigKrow (talk) 22:02, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Additional material and sources?

edit

Could someone please merge the More weather problems predicted for parts of Texas article into this one? [24Cr][talk] 20:47, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

These seem to be 2 (related) news stories, but not the same. Besides, the other event is from 5-6 days ago@Cromium Me Da Wikipedian (talk) 21:35, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Yes, but synthesis articles can have older material. I was just thinking some of the older article could be added as a third, background paragraph to show the weather has been like this for a few days. We could then add another source such as the Fox News one to cover the background. I'd do it but then I can't review it. [24Cr][talk] 21:49, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
The mess/stories are pouring in so fast (see what I did there?!), that it's hard to get a lasso around any darned single thing. I am (dead serious) suffering from weather fatigue. --and I'm so tired I don't think I have 10 more key strokes in me.--Bddpaux (talk) 21:57, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I edited on the premise that when Central Standard Time was mentioned here, it was supposed to be Central Daylight Time, since that's what we're on now. Also, the headline is awfully unspecific (especially as severe weather systems have been near-constant here for more than a week), which is often difficult not to do with weather articles. I'd go with something more like "Severe weather brings high winds, blackouts to eastern Texas", maybe adding "including city of Tyler" at the end. That's also more interesting to readers, in my opinion. Heavy Water (talk) 17:32, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for correcting that. I'd have preferred an additional paragraph showing it's been ongoing for a while but it didn't happen. So, I reviewed it as is. [24Cr][talk] 17:58, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
