A nurse named Emily Grigsby braved the bitter cold to care for her senior neighbors during the recent severe weather conditions in Texas.
“The 39-year-old nurse has been tending to the elderly residents in her Austin neighborhood over the last week when freezing temperatures caused by Winter Storm Uri hit Texas,” People reported Thursday.
As countless Texans endured power outages, they also grappled with a water shortage that left them with no drinking water or a way to wash themselves.
On Thursday, Grigsby traveled through 32-degree weather to get to an elderly neighbor who was burned when she melted snow to fill her toilet.
“We’re now melting snow on the stove to flush out toilets with, and she accidentally poured the pot of boiling water on her leg,” said Grigsby, who is a mom to two boys. “It’s getting kind of crazy around here.”
