On my town website you get the following pop-up from the electric provider:
[We are] experiencing peak use. While loss of service is unlikely, please conserve energy at this time to help keep electric rates down. Thank you!Now, from the Weather.Gov website, for the area:
...DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND TRY TO STAY IN AN AIR CONDITIONED ENVIRONMENT. PLEASE ALSO CHECK ON ANY ELDERLY NEIGHBORS OR FAMILY MEMBERS THAT LIVE ALONE.Since I work from home, do I conserve energy by not turning on the AC and muscle it out or turn on the AC to stay in the right environment? Perhaps I should call in hot to work and turn off the PC. *laughs* Yeah, I can imagine that conversation with the boss.
* Pardon the caps, for whatever reason, Weather.gov hasn't invested in announcements with lowercase letters.
For what it's worth, I may not have any elderly in the house but the kids have been looking like small balls of mobile condensation so the AC is on until the T-Storms hit.
Come on T-Storms!
