Well- the electric bill came today- and indeed our record setting hot streak
does come at a price.  $144 for this month's electricity.  The month before
(and our norm during most summer months) was $60. Yuck!  
But, on a much more positive note-  my husband was offered a very nice
position today, which he accepted and will start in 2 weeks.  So yeah!!! 
13 months and 5 days of job hunting finally paid off!  Thank God!
