One more thing to love about spring

I am still sick, or allergy-ridden, or whatever it is, and feeling generally thick.

However, our March energy bill came today, and it is just over half of what it was during the peak winter months. And that makes me really happy, despite the nasal congestion.

Plus, the upside of not having air conditioning: this summer, our energy bills will barely crack $50.

The timing could not be better.

Happy weekend, everyone!


  1. I love when the energy bills start to go down in the spring and the fall - but then B reminds me that his job relies on those energy bills, and I feel a little conflicted.

  2. $50?! That's it, I'm moving to Colorado. We always forget to budget in the rise in electric bills for the summer and winter (the abundance of Christmas lights sends it sky high!) When the bill actually matches the budgeted amount, it's a good month!

  3. The cool thing about Denver (or at least how I understand it, for it's been compared to Rapid City) is that even if it's really hot HOT HOT during the day, it cools off at night. You can open the house up, let the cool mountain air in, and cool things off. My family in the Black Hills rarely use air conditioning for this reason! (Opposed to here, where it gets hot and never cools, even at night... so the house is ALWAYS hot...)

    Hope you start to feel better soon!
