As I begin this Blog, we are in the middle of the Summer and on another day of 100 F.  Thank goodness the a/c is working and I can write this issue under the overhead fan in my bonus room.  Don’t know which I prefer more, the dog days of Summer or the below freezing days of Winter.  One thing I dislike about the weather is when I get caught up in a howling wind and it’s raining.  Being wet and cold are far worse than hot temperatures.

I ended our first Blog with notes on the cost increases for utilities. These are price increases that affect all of us and are happening in our own backyard.  The cost of electricity next year, if approved by the state governing board, will be 8% higher than the current year while the cost of natural gas as announced is expected to increase 25% if approved by the State Industrial Board.
