Four bitterly cold days in January!

January 19 – 22 will stick out in most peoples minds as four days that really put a topper on heats costs. What with the costs that inflation has wrought, these four days will represent money that could be be spent elsewhere.

I spent an additional $26 just to heat my house, on top of a monthly bill to an estimated $170. And that was by heating only a bedroom/office while leaving the rest of the fourth story condo alone. I was used to paying $90, and I can only imagine what a family of four had to endure.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve lived the better part of 73 years in relative comfort, partly supported on the backs of men and women who lost their lives just so I could do so in a nation of free people. Sadly, those times appear over.

So, me and about 30 million plus others on fixed income will continue to bit the bullet and remember better times.
