And The Number Is

$47.28 for 171 kwh's of electricity. That includes $3.34 in taxes. That is almost 28 cents a kwh.

The two places I lived previously for the same amount of usage the bills would have been around $16 and $22.

And no body gave a shit at least the ones I spoke with about the impending increase. And for me this particular bill because it's such a small amount is over a 30% increase from the previous rate structure. Last time I called propane was $4.50 a gallon. On 9/19/13 when I filled it was $2.35. I don't know how people can do it if they don't have options about heating.

It's -7 and I'm burning wood like crazy. Next winter I'm outta here and want to miss as much of this as possible. It's a health and mental issue for me. I'm going to try anyway.

My money says there's some crimes happening when you see shit like this. Capitalism will NOT be denied.

  3. Yes, same prices here and it is highway robbery as far as I'm concerned. Then, they will bring the price down just a little and we will get used to the new norm as it rises yet again ... same as gasoline ... I agree, a warmer clime next year ...

  5. Hey, Tom! How is Stretch? You haven't said for awhile.

    It's a whole 27* here and it's 2:20 in the afternoon. I'm sick of winter.

  6. Damn cat - all it wants to do is lay around/eat and have me chase it around the rest of the time.

    It's a cold no sun 11. I went out and will remain inside for the duration. 76 inside and that's fine by me.
