Well, it turns out the meter guy was just 'guessing' according to GA Power. We have 2 large pups and a lock on the gate, so he just guessed a number. We just meet the number of kilowatts he 'guessed' we used last month. We were charge 300 for power we just reached, and 700$ this month for power we probably wont reach till the end of summer. Now, what I don't get is why he never knocked on the door and asked me to bring the dogs in? I have waved at him the last 3 times he came around, and he just stood on the side of my house and wrote any ole number that came to his mind instead of knocking on my door???? Guess I need to take down the beware of dog Singh and put up one that says "GA POWER MAN, KNOCK ON MY DOOR AND I WILL PUT MY STUPID PUPS AWAY!"

If I were you, I'd get with GA Power and have another meter reading, as well as have your bills from the last couple of months averaged back, and then averaged forward. You can have your bill adjusted for the entire year.

Has anyone noticed: Lately the whether has been nice (below 100, LOL), then the sun will get so hot, that the water literally boils in front of your eyes, returns to the sky, then there are massive thunderstorms. Then the temperature will be tolerable, then rise up, and the cycle repeats....this stinkin' heat!

This is what Mother Nature does just about every summer. You get used to it after about 40-50 years.

22 years living here, and I don't think I could ever get used to.

I grew up in the desert, where it hit 113 on the regular. But it was a dry heat. They kind that makes your eyes suck into your head, and nose bleeds and such. Here its like stepping into a wall of HOT jello.

One more thing, Since this area is in a 'drought' I was wondering if in an average year it is greener looking? Plants more lush?

Lawns need mowing more often, even without additional watering. Bushes grow more. More weeds. Yes, I guess you could say things are more lush.

What we can go by in the area is the additional need for water in gardens etc. I kid you not, I seldom watered shrubbery or lawn.

And NO, I don't think that anyone ever get accustomed to the humidity. We just learn to make the best of a bad situation and look forward to the winter and spring. It's difficult to explain to people what humidity is!
