January 15. Day 15. Take a cold shower
The household has been struck down by what I shall call power bill shock. It's a particularly severe case. Our response to the recent oppressive heat has been to pump up the air conditioning and hang the cost. Well that attitude has come home to roost and let's just say it's not pretty.
So it's time to go all Survivor and get back to basics, where basics includes the use of the pool and the fridge but restricted use of AC. I know, that's hardcore but that's how it's going to be people. If you are hot, take a cold shower. That ruling is final and will not be modified, ever, or until the water usage bill arrives, whichever is sooner.
