In Canada we call the electric bills Hydro bills, mostly because our electric power is from waterfalls or source of water.I am now sitting here writing to you snuggled up in blankets on my desk chair LOL. I am writing with my gloves on because I am not wanting to turn a small heater on to heat my bedroom.
In recent years that I have lived in my apartment (I have been here 13 years) I have used the electric heat in the ceiling to heat it and my bills have been $400 a month. This is more than I make a week. I now only heat my bedroom in the winter and it's time to turn the heater on because I can see my breath as I am writing this post.
