OMG I almost passed out when we got our electric bill for Dec. It's higher than our highest summertime electric bill. It's been a real cold Dec and we've even been using the fireplace a lot to help hoping that would save us just a little. Yeah it'll get paid but geez we even are on a set rate as well so higher rates can't even be blamed. Can't wait to get the Jan bill because it's been even colder.
