It's hard to tell how much electricity the water heater is using unless you have it on a timer. Mine is 4000 watts, which is a lot. What were your August and September kWh uses?

Yes, this is one of the options I'm considering, as well as an on-demand heater. Just have not had time to research these thoroughly due to having to prepare wood for the winter. I would certainly...

Um . . . you talkin' to me about the bird feeder? OK, in my defense, I learned from this incident. And in the second photo he was just trying to get a better look at the thermometer.

Update on General Altimax RT45

I've driven a few hundred miles on these tires and am liking them quite a lot. I'm not a tire expert, but they feel good to me, solid. Quiet in my opinion. I chose them for the 70K mile warranty and...
