Unsurprisingly, I’ve been busy since getting home — either busy or tired — so I haven’t had much to say here nor time to say it.
Tomorrow, Diane reads Torah during minyan services and I am giving a drash; she’s been preparing for weeks, and I’ve just barely started. Luckily, I get to do my part in English, but I’d better get to work!
Susan points out that the LA Times has an
online calculator to help figure out what effect the rate increase approved by the California PUC will have. I just tried it on our most recent bill, and discovered that our bill would have been $2.68 higher, which doesn’t strike me as a strong encouragement to conserve. Our July bill would have gone up almost $4, which probably wouldn’t cause us to make big changes, either.
But our bill did come with a new motivation to conserve — we’re no longer exempt from rotating outages. Instead, we’re now proud members of Outage Block 7, so I guess we’ll get to do our part as the weather warms up.
