In the winter, our electric bill triples due to use of electrically heated water troughs in the fields and water buckets in the barn.   So, when we receive mail from the Public Services of New Hampshire in the winter, we brace ourselves before viewing the hefty utility bill.
Earlier this week, we got December's bill.   December was a cold month.   So, it was an expensive month.   But today, we received an unexpected second piece of mail from PSNH ...
... a thank you letter!
"As our meter readers have to wade through deep snow and climb over banks daily during the winter months, it is a pleasure to find someone like yourself who has cleared a path to the meters.
We would like to express our appreciation for your thoughfulness in taking the time from your schedule to think of the meter reader.
Thank you for your cooperation."
As customers, this was a really pleasant letter to receive from our utility provider.   Little do they realise, however, that Georg truly enjoys using his snowblower and is happy to spend hours clearing lovely paths around the property.   Hardly a burden really....
