OK people. The entire USA is having a heat spell. This means
everyone will be turning on their air conditioners, fans and
everything else electrical. Of course, as always, screw your
neighbor. They dont need to stay cool, just YOU. Remember, YOU are
the center of the universe, so hoard your electricity. Use as much as
you can. Turn on every electrical device in your home, and dont
forget all the power tools and other devices in your garage.
Turn it ALL on. Hoarde, and hoarde more. Lets see if we can black out
the entire USA.
Okay, class. Time for your spelling lesson:
To store a way a chest of golden treasure is to 'hoard'.
A "horde" of filthy pirates might steal what you stored.
You just can't have it both ways, though.
(And as far as the crankiness, well, if the PoCos would beef up the
grid a bit rather than play the stock market so much, perhaps there'd
be no problem)
Nice and cool here in the Sonoran desert. We've had the AC off for a
few days now, and my rainwater storage is close to full capacity. I'm
still screwing my neighbor, though. Tom
Yes, we just finished with that in CA. It was the hottest that I can
remember, and the electric bill (and I live in a fairly small house
under 1300 feet) was $434.00. Needless to say, I signed up for the year
round bill today that makes it the same price every month, and then they
will reconcile it one way or another every June.

to just keep increasing output.
