As the temperature in her Dallas home dropped, Carol Uberbacher gathered piles of blankets and bundled up in three layers of clothes.

Uberbacher was among the 4 million Texans who lost power this week as the state’s electrical grid failed in the wake of two winter storms.

When her friends couldn’t reach her by phone Tuesday morning, they discussed their options. Driving to her home would be difficult with many roads still unpassable. So they started working the phones.
