My electric bill went from $40 a month to $160. At that rate, the eletric company will own me by January. $50 of that is because the forgot to send me my bill for the previous month (Dominion eletrics own admission that they screwed up, I doubt they will undo the penalties on my account like they promised) That leaves $110 for electricity when it usually is $40, and last August it was $90. I can’t believe how expensive the air conditioner is. Anhow, time to turn it off. Fortunately, my building has plenty of cold water for showering (no hot water, but that is a different story).
