Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

I turned the AC off sometime back in early September, and enjoyed some glorious late summer weather with the windows open. I still haven't turned on the heat. It's supposed to go into the twenties tonight with a hard freeze, so I was pretty resigned to the fact that fall is finally here, and that I would probably need to give in to turning on the heat tonight.

But you know what? It's still very comfortable in the house. I built a fire in the fireplace, tossed on a T-shirt and a piece of fleece, socks, and some sweatpants (yeah, I know, a glamorous Friday evening, but I need some down time, and I have to work at a medical conference my docs are hosting downtown tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM). With the down comforter on my bed, and the two portable heaters I sleep with known as cats, I think we'll be fine for a few more nights, and the temps are headed back to the 60's and 70's later next week.

In other news, I switched my electricity supplier on July 1 to Washington Gas and Electric. With BGE balanced billing, my monthly bill was about $120 before the rate hike. My bill after the rate hike and switching suppliers? $47. Total. FOR THREE MONTHS. I kid you not. July and August used the credit on my BGE account, but Sept. was a true bill. We'll see what happens after I turn the heat back on.

    Is it easy to switch suppliers? How did you do it? Do you just call up Washington G&E and they take care of everything?

    I did it all on line. Click on the link in the post. I would be surprised if you could switch since you live in an apartment, but perhaps they can do it on an account basis.
