Called the power company to give a new meter reading and have them adjust the bill. We discovered that the meter has died. Which means that bill has gone bye-bye and they can only charge me the minimum charge of $10.00 plus taxes, etc. And they have to send someone out to replace the meter, which means that they can't accurately charge me until that happens.
So, a tech will be digging through 3 1/2 feet of snow to replace the meter. And in the mean time?
I've cranked the heat ALL the way up. Sure the heck beats paying over $600!
