The winter generally might not be bad, but the mornings are bitterly cold, cold enough to freeze any condensation on the inside of the window. And the days are cold too, except for maybe an hour or two mid afternoon, then the frosts are settling again by seven.
I hate the yo yo affect the southerlies and nor westers are doing too, you don't feel like you acclimate so it feels colder Unless you have a lovely sunny house its all quite depressing

I feel sorry for pensioners who can't afford heating. This is the shame of our society.

It's not only pensioners who can't.

There's stories of families all sleeping in one room as it's warmer

I have found I can keep electricity prices down by running a buried extension cord to the neighbours place for the high draw devices such as heaters and dryers etc. The hardest part is plugging it in somewhere hidden.

Can't be many electric things. My electric toys, computers, TV, mysky, tivo, blueray etc. use more than that in January, in Christchurch.

668 kwh is less than an average of 1 kw/hr of load.

Note: My hot water and night store heater circuit uses 669 kwh alone (10.32 cents/kwh).
