Public Service Announcement: Electricity Costs

This PSA is for those of you that don’t know but do care, but even if you do know are interested, use electricity and/or are located in Ontario, Canada.

As of November 1, Hydro Ontario went and messed with us again (I’m being kind) by changing the “Time of Use Price Periods”. Whatever your previous arrangements were (in order to save your wallets and the planet), you’re screwed (sorry Dad but there just wasn’t any other way to say it). You can no longer shower in the morning (well, you can but it will cost you), instead, you have to shower after 7pm (basically after you’ve gone to bed). Breakfast, lunch and dinner, think sandwiches or, if you want a hot meal, think after 7pm. Preferably after you’ve gone to bed. See what I was saying.

In turn, effective immediately, all Zoo members will be wearing “Sleep Sacks”(these ones are Made in Canada!) to save on heating costs.

P.S. I was going to include “Hydro” in the title but Ed informed me that only people from Ontario would know this as other people don’t get their electricity from Hydro dams. This always gets me in Mexico because I use the Spanish word for “hydro” (which is actually hydro just pronounced differently) and they have no idea what I’m talking about as they call it “electricidad”).
