I just went through our house & unplugged pretty much everything. The computer, TV/DVR box, and major appliances were the only things to escape the powerless fate. I also just reset our thermostat to be about the same temperature all day & night long. It varies, but it’s between 67-69 degrees. Of course, this is coming from the person who likes to keep it cranked at around 76, so we’ll see how that goes. We have to do something– our utility bills are the only thing that costs more in Iowa than Oregon. Why is that? Do I need to contact the state and tell them to put a wind turbine in the back, next to my tomatoes? I’m going to work on getting the curtains made for our bedroom windows too, to further alleviate the need of our expensive AC running 24 hours a day.
Ok, back to housework.
