I have been here for 5 years and this is the coldest Winter so far.
My neighbour has been here for 40 years and she says it's a real shocker this year!
I keep track of my home and rental utility bills (teenagers!) and am presently running at 3 times normal usage for gas and electricity. (very little solar feed in neither!)
With the 18 % increase in electricity costs and this increased usage there are some painful bills arriving at the end of September.
Best to put a little extra away each week from now on as everyone must be in the same situation...
