No End In Sight

Triple digits again tomorrow. Low in the high seventies again tonight. It's likely that I've spent about forty dollars on air conditioning so far this billing period, and it's only about half over. Next month's bill will probably be the highest summer electric bill I've ever gotten. And I haven't even kept the house especially comfortable. Just barely tolerable. The windows will probably have to stay closed and the air conditioner on all night tonight. The forecast has no end in sight.

I don't think I'll eat dinner tonight. I had a toasted bagel with cream cheese for a late lunch, and I'm still not very hungry. It's an opportunity to save a couple more bucks toward that power bill. Also I think my water heater might have crapped out. When I washed some dishes (they were last night's) today the water got no more than lukewarm. Of course if I want hot water in this weather all I need to do is put a bucket of it out in the sun for a couple of hours. But once the days cool off I'm going to need that water heater again.

Cruel summer.
