I know it's been cold, but I've never paid more than $70 - just got a bill for $165. Anyone else experience something similar?

Yes, that cold snap really took a toll. Ours was quite a bit higher also. Not our highest ever but the highest in quite a while.

I haven't gotten my electric bill yet but I am fearing what it will be. We don't have central heating so we've been using space heaters. Space Heaters = High Electric Usage. We use is sparingly and on a low setting but still...

Ours was $253.00!!! That is the HIGHEST electric bill I have EVER had in my Life! But everything in the house we just bought is electric. I am hoping it will go down after the cold spell goes away and the heater isn't running constantly. We are in Amarillo Texas and have been having some super cold nights and mornings......

The economics work better to have natural gas for heat - not to mention how great it is for cooking.

My last was double of Oct-Nov. That ice storm and the previous snap took its toll. Heat pumps suck when its 15-30F for days on end.
